What is gravity

  1. Sep 17, 2005 #1
    If acceleration can create a force like gravity, then all objects are accelerating? are they accelerating through one of those 11 dimensions?

    This makes no sense at all. Gravity causes bodies to accelerate, not the other way around. And besides there are 4 dimensions that we know of. Whatever string theorists are proposing for the dimensionality of the universe is just speculation until there is experimental verification to it.
