The physical model for gravitation and inertia described in a previous essay is extended to include effects of expansion and acceleration of mutually interacting nucleons, and of noninteracting nucleons in the vicinity of a massive body. The analytical results functionally and quantitatively confirm the non-Newtonian dependence of force on gravitational acceleration inferred empirically from the observed interaction of celestial bodies in regions of very weak gravitational acceleration. For noninteracting nucleons in the vicinity of a massive body, a constant inward-directed force on the nucleon that is farther from the body is perceived from the position of the nearer. This other type of non-Newtonian dynamics is confirmed quantitatively by observations of an anomalous acceleration in spacecraft at distances greater than 15 AU from the Sun.
