Of Course The Distance That Is Changing Is The Distance Between

That statemet is not true. It is the acceleration of one of the masses. If the masses were equal, then it would be 1/2 the distance between the masses that is changing. But it the general case of unequal masses, the rate of change of position of the two masses are not equal.

If you were correct, then what is being accelerated is a volume related to the distance between the masses. So the further the masses are apart, the larger the volume being accelerated.

That does noe make sense. That's no joke.

By the way. This is a polite forum. The kind of remarks being used by you are unwanted. You are not talking to another Jr High School kid.

I expect an apology.
