Abstract
Newton's Law of Gravitation has been tested at small values a of the acceleration, down to a a parts per thousand 10(-10) ms(-2), the approximate value of MOND's constant a (0). Within experimental errors no deviations from Newton's Law were found. A comparison with six versions of the MOND interpolation function is given. Under the assumptions made in this paper one of the versions can be excluded.
