An elementary physical framework is defined for the origin of gravitation and inertia based on the time delay for transmission of forces within nucleons and expansion of the universe. The derived values for the nucleon inertial mass and the gravitational constant G, in terms of the nucleon radius, the age of the universe, and the speed of light, are quantitatively consistent with the observed values.
