Understand the law of Gravitation.
Gravitation is a force that attracts two objects to each other and is key to understanding motion in our universe, as well as in many areas of physics and engineering. Gravitational forces act on all objects in the universe and are described through Isaac Newton's famous law of gravitation known as “F = Gm1m2/r^2”. The force of gravity between two objects is directly proportional to their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
By understanding the law of gravitation, we can draw conclusions about how objects move and interact with each other. This is especially important when considering motions such as orbiting planets and stars or describing the properties of dense concentrations of gravitational mass. Gravitation is key in determining the trajectory of celestial bodies including asteroids, comets and planetoids which are highly affected by the combined forces of many masses in orbit around them. As such, gravitation plays an essential role when analyzing phenomena related to movements through space.
