Henry Cavendish first measured the universal gravitational constant G in 1798. The apparatus used is shown in Figure 1. Other experimenters repeated Cavendish’s measurement of G with various improvements and refinements. All measurements of G are found to be difficult because of the extreme weakness of the gravitational attraction. Setup of Henry Cavendish to measure […]
The objective of this post is the study the Universal Law of Gravitation and the derivation of the Gravitational Force formula from the Universal Law of Gravitation.
