Formula used: $F = \dfrac{{G{m_1}{m_2}}}{{{r^2}}}$ , $F = mg$

In the question we have demanded the difference between gravitation and gravity, there is a very small difference between them which we will find by using the definition and formulas which are given as,

Gravitational Force: It is the force acting between two bodies in the universe. It is expressed mathematically as, $F = \dfrac{{G{m_1}{m_2}}}{{{r^2}}}$ .

Gravity force: It is the force applied by the earth on any object present near it. It is expressed precisely as, $F = mg$ .

Now, we will consider the differences such as,

Gravitation is the attractive force existing between any two objects that have mass whereas gravity is the gravitational force that occurs between the earth and other bodies.

Gravitational force is weaker in comparison to the earth’s gravity.

Now, in the expression of gravitation, the value of G is $6.67 \times {10^{ - 11}}N{m^2}/k{g^2}$ which is a universal constant, while the value of g in the expression of gravity is not the same everywhere in the universe and it is taken as $9.81m/{s^2}$ on earth.
