gravitational interaction

n.
1. The weakest of the four fundamental interactions of nature, hypothetically mediated by gravitons and acting on particles that have mass or energy. Also called gravitation.
2. An instance of this interaction.

gravitational force

n
(General Physics) an interaction between particles or bodies resulting from their mass. It is very weak and occurs at all distances. See interaction2

The construction of a quantum theory for gravity consists in one of the most challenging problems of theoretical physics, since there are no experimental hints about what kind of effects we should expect from quantum corrections to the gravitational interaction. However, even without experimental evidences, a great deal of theoretical effort has been done in the last decades.
