Description

The gravitational constant is the least-well measured fundamental constant in Nature. Several recent determinations have not reduced the uncertainty, and some measurements are in severe disagreement with the accepted value. Among others, the most common characteristic of the experiments performed is the fact that the ?source? mass of the measured gravitational field is much larger than the ?test? mass. So far, no report on the determination for the gravitational interaction between commensurable masses can be found in the literature. Recently in Hungary, an unusual method has been developed for the investigating gravity between commensurable masses by using relatively large physical pendulum. This new measuring system from the beginning has shown a completely new, unknown face of the gravity.
