# Action at a distance, such as is the case for gravity, was once thought to be illogical and therefore untrue. What is the ultimate determinant of the truth in physics, and why was this action ultimately accepted?

The observation of gravity was a great achievement during that time to develop the theories and hence it is ultimately accepted.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Definition of Gravity

Gravity is a universal phenomenon and is introduced by Newton and Derived the expression for gravitational force.

## Step 2: Determining the ultimate determinant

From the gravitational force, it was developed the facts about the planet’s revolution around the orbits.

Using gravitation, almost astronomical problems can be explained and derived to many conclusions.

Therefore, the observation of gravity was a great achievement during that time to develop the theories and hence it is ultimately accepted.
