...produced on the earth by the sun will have their maximum at these two dates. It is a well known law that **every particle of matter in the universe attracts every other particle, with a force** directly proportioned to the mass of the attracting particle, and inversely to the square of the distance... | |

...this whole pomp of stars might have been evolved. The law of gravitation enunciated by Newton is, that **every particle of matter in the universe attracts every other particle with a force** which diminishes as the square of the distance increases. Thus the sun and the earth mutually pull... | |

GRAND LAW OP **GRAVITATION.* — Every particle of matter in the universe attracts every other particle** of matter with a force directly proportional to its mass, and decreasing as the square of the distance... | |

...inversely proportional to the squares of their distances from the third body. This, then, is Newton's **Law of Universal Gravitation.

...The sequence is inevitable. The second instance is the law of gravitation. Every particle of matter **attracts every other 'particle, with a force varying inversely as the square of** the -distance. This causes the motion of the sun, moon, planets, and stars ; at the same time the attraction... | |
