Relation between gravity and entropy

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a question regarding the two seemingly different phenomenon of gravity and entropy.I want to ask that exactly how the gravity and over-all entropy of the universe are related?The thing that came to my mind is that could gravity be not a fundamental force of nature at all? Could it be a part of the phenomenon of the ever-increasing entropy of the universe?
