Fact, Law, Theory of Gravity
Fact of gravity: Two masses have an attractive force between them (that isn't because of magnetics, electrostatics, or ?).
Law of gravity: A mathematical equation that quantifies the force between the masses. For non-relativistic conditions, it's (IIRC) directly proportional to the sum of the masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the centers of the masses.
Theory of gravity: The hows and whys of the force.
