"heh heh, i don't think you mean the only measurable result that we can achieve which is that objects regardless of weight fall at the same rate in the neighborhood of a massive object."

The equations I developed can be repeated for 3, 4, ....etc. objects with similar results.
Each equation will contain a summation of all masses with a factor related to the angles between them.

For your idea to be correct some of the individual masses must drop from the equations during the derivation of a composite acceleration.

I would be interested in seeing that result if you are able to achieve it. One or more of the mass variables may vanish if a specific mass distribution is used.

"The introduction of other mass objects doesn't confuse the issue. it clarifies it.
how else would you explain inertia?"

Inertia is the attraction of a mass to its own gravitational field.

Inertia is a function of the mass of an object, the mass of the universe, and a masses acceleration with respect to a previous velocity.
( Please note that I included the mass of the universe in that definition.)

I do not see why inertia would cause me to question the acceleration equation I derived.

May all your trajectories be true.
( This is in reference to your basketball game. )
