    No, Gravitational field strength is the magnitude of Gravitational force at a particular point, at a particular instant while Gravity is the term we use to refer to gravitational force, in General

    @TairunRaina Quote: "Gravitational field strength is the magnitude of Gravitational force" Gravitational field is NOT a force; it is the ration of a force by a mass.

    \[F=\frac{MmG}{r^2}\]\[Field_G=\frac{MG}{r^2}\]They re in the same direction, that is inwards to the body
