Hi guys! So I am a little congused about Newtonian gravitation. I understand the equation to get a scalar for the strength of gravity, but when I plugged it into a vector field calculator (with random values of m and M), all the vectors only pointed in one way. I do understand that r-hat could be positive 1 or negative 1 depending where m and M are, but still, the arrows can only go in 2 directions. I'm not sure if this is a stupid question, but I am a little confused.
