Gravitational Force:

Every object in the universe, whether small or big, exerts a pressure on every other object.
This is known as the #color(darkorange)("gravitational force."#
eg: revolution of the earth around the sun.


Force of gravity:

Objects or things fall towards the earth because it pulls them. This is an attractive force.
This is known as the #color(darkorange)("force of gravity or just gravity."#
eg: Water from the rivers flows downwards due to the force of gravity.
Formation of waterfalls due to gravity.
