In this four-lesson series on gravity, we'll start with Newton's law of gravitation and then move on to discussions of gravity on or near the surface of the earth. Next, we'll consider how gravity changes (and gives a sensation of weightlessness) as an object becomes more distant from the earth. Last, we'll look at gravitational potential energy, which is the potential energy between two masses.
