If f(r, v) is Busack's correction, the

inverse-square law becomes

The final measurement in this group of related experiments was a test of the inverse-square law of gravitation on the scale of meters to kilometers.

They recognized that short-range deviations from the inverse-square law would cause gravity to increase at a rate different than that calculated using 1/[r.

0 mm--large enough to be detectable but small enough not to be ruled out by tests of the inverse-square law to date.

If those dimensions exist, gravity in the submillimeter range would increase not according to Newton's inverse-square law but in inverse proportion to the fourth power of the separation.

He admits, however, that he was unable to master the mathematics required to show how elliptical orbits arise from an inverse-square law.

Acknowledging that Newton had succeeded in solving the mathematical problem but incensed that his own name is not mentioned in a section of Newton's treatise recently read at a Royal Society meeting, Hooke has demanded that Newton give him proper credit in the Principia for the inverse-square law.

All three of these types of experiments--G measurements, Equivalence Principle and inverse-square law tests--however, are static measurements in the sense that the test masses were not free to move beyond a small distance compared to the size of the source mass.
