You skipped over a key integer. Hint: What integer is between -1 and +1?

Um, actually, the integer x/r dr is xln(r). Which means the equation of gravity in one dimension would be:

f(r) = gravitational force = xln(r). So gravity would according to this increase with increased distance, something I find hard to believe. It means the further you are away, the stronger it'd pull, well until you get to a distance of 0, then it starts to push you away again... because ln(r)<0 if r<1. This is something similar to strong force, it's repulsive at a certain closeness, but if they stray too for from each other it becomes a very strong attractive force.

I thought that gravity did not change with distance in 1 dimensional space?

So I was wrong?
