Some aspects of gravity related thermodynamics and thermodynamic related gravitation is mentioned. It will be demonstrated, that heat capacity of black holes is positive if volume is introduced as a thermodynamic state variable [1]. Then it is shown, that Newtonian gravitation is emergent in a universal nonequilibrium thermodynamic framework [2]. Finally our Eötvös balance modernisation project and the preliminary results of our equivalence principle measurement is presented [3].
