Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation

Every point mass attracts every single other point mass by a force pointing along the line intersecting both points. The force is proportional to the product of the two masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them

 Stating a Physics Law without Physics Terminology

Newton\'s Law of Universal Gravitation > Comparison > A Unique Statement of the Law of Universal Gravitation
Buckminster Fuller's restatement of Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, without using any of the physics terminology in the original, is thought provoking in how flaky it sounds.
