COMMENTS

The absolute value of the gravitational attraction force between a homogeneous regular tetrahedron with mass M and edge length 2*s and a test particle with mass m located at the tetrahedron's center of face is c*G*M*m/s^2, where G is the gravitational constant (A070058) and c is this constant.
The centers of the faces are the positions where the gravitational field that is generated by the tetrahedron attains its maximum absolute value.
