Bodies are composed of equal numbers of positive and negative electric charges from which fields emanate into space in accordance with Coulomb’s inverse square law. Mass of a body and Newton’s law of gravitation are expressed in terms of the number of charges constituting each of two separate bodies in space. It is proposed that electric fields from charges in a body are bent, causing small strains on charges encountered in another body, such that forces of repulsion are slightly reduced and forces of attraction similarly increased, resulting in gravitational force of attraction. While electrostatic forces of repulsion and attraction cancel out exactly, gravitational forces of attraction remain, in accordance with Newton’s inverse square law.
