Classical Newtonian gravitation (CNG) encounters problems at short distances because of the emergence of quantum effects. Experimentally, CNG has been shown to be valid down to 52 micrometers. Here we undertake a classical canonical ensemble treatment of Newtonian gravitation (NG) and discover interesting effects at very short distances.
