Noun1.gravitation - (physics) the force of attraction between all masses in the universe; especially the attraction of the earth's mass for bodies near its surface; "the more remote the body the less the gravity"; "the gravitation between two bodies is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them"; "gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love"--Albert Einstein
2.gravitation - movement downward resulting from gravitational attraction; "irrigation by gravitation rather than by pumps"
Antonyms:
levitation - movement upward in virtue of lightness
