Could somebody show me mathematically why/why not gravity could/couldn't directly be caused by expansion -everything pulling/moving away from each other? When you are in a car, and you are accelerating, your body wants to stay where it was a moment before... Thus your head gets thrown back into the seat until you stop accelerating... Is this why we have gravity? Say a planets particles are moving away from each other, and that this is happening at an ever increasing rate... Is that why we have "gravity"? I wouldn't mind seeing it mathematically.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

PS this time i am NOT posing a theory... I am just asking to see this mathematically. ;)
