Using the Gauss law of gravity and some data which was missing in Newton’s time, Newtonian gravity (NG) will be redefined. The two crucial points of this redefinition are as follows: first, the “inverse of squared distance” in Newton’s law of gravity, stated as the distance between two bodies, will be treated as the radius of the body in question; second, according to NG, the entire mass of a given body contributes to the attraction of the other body, whereas, according to redefined NG (RNG), only a certain element of the mass of the body under consideration makes this contribution. We consider that RNG yields more accurate results than NG and, more importantly, provides explanations for situations that NG is unable to give, including explanations for “action at a distance,” “the speed of gravity,” and “gravity at the center of a spherical body.” RNG also has great potential to explain subsequent problems such as “dark matter.”

En utilisant la loi de gravité de Gauss et certaines données manquantes à l'époque de Newton, la gravité newtonienne (GN) sera redéfinie. Les deux points cruciaux de cette redéfinition sont les suivants: premièrement, “l’inverse de la distance au carré” dans la loi de la gravité de Newton, énonçant la distance entre deux corps, sera traité comme le rayon du corps en question; deuxièmement, selon GN, la totalité de la masse d’un corps donné contribue à l’attraction de l’autre corps, alors que, selon le GN redéfini (RGN), seul un certain élément de la masse du corps considéré apporte cette contribution. Nous considérons que le RGN donne des résultats plus précis que la gravité newtonienne et, plus important encore, fournit des explications pour les situations où la gravité newtonienne est incapable de donner, y compris des explications pour “l'action à distance”, “la vitesse de gravité” et “la gravité au centre d'un corps sphérique”. Le RGN a également un grand potentiel pour expliquer des problèmes ultérieurs tels que la “matière noire”.
