The purpose of my research is to ansrver the age old question of what is the cause of gravity? We know the effects, but not the cause. Knowing that Newton's Law of attracting masses is valid, the question becomes what is inside masses that causes them to aftract each other. ls it the atoms nuclei, distortion of Einstein's space time continuum or something else? By observations of nuclei behavior such as beta decay and capture, insight to the cause of gravity can be gained. Using a modified Coulomb's Law, the force between masses can be calculated and it agrees with that of Newton's Law. The paper will demonstrate that gravity is caused by the electrostatic forces between Earth's negative charge and positive charges that exist in all atoms. Atoms are positive because they are all polarized as a result of nuclei composed of dipoles. The attraction of negative and positive charges is universally accepted. Now it can be shown that the same can be said for gravity. All things on, in or around Earth are polarized by Earth's negative charge and attracted to Earth by what is called gravity.
