Gravity across Multiple Dimensions

  1. Mar 19, 2009 #1
    Would the Gravitational force be applied equally across multiple dimensions or exponentially?

    Could you measure the Gravitational force across 3 dimensions and the take that value divide by 3 and get the value of the gravitational force across 1 dimension?

    What do you mean, specifically, by "gravitational force across 1 dimension?"

    If I understand it right.

    We experience the force of gravity across three dimensions currently because we live in three dimensions.

    But Gravity exists across more than the three we can experience, that is the explanation of why the force of gravity is so weak compared to other forces.

    So logically if you were only in 1 dimension it would be even weaker and in more than 3 it would be greater.

    I am working on a formula for the force of gravity across 1 dimension... but the question is can you simply divide the current value obtained by formula by 3 to get the value of 1 (assuming the force of gravity is equal in all dimensions.)
