The newtonField node models Newtonian gravitational attraction between two objects. The force exerted is proportional to the product of the two masses and to the magnitude, and inversely proportional to the distance. The minDistance parameter allows one to turn off the field force within a certain minimum distance of the field, so as to avoid division by zero. For geometry objects, each vertex/cv counts as a mass of 1. For particles, the field will use the mass attribute if one is present; if not, each particle counts 1.
