Force of Gravity and Gravitational Potential Energy Functions from Zero to Infinity (but not beyond)

Calculus is used to determine the force of gravity and the gravitational potential energy between an object and a planet, inside and outside the planet. Equations and graphs are determined and discussed. Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics C: Mechanics topic.
