What is the math formula for the force as a function of distance

January 28th, 2011 @6:21 pm

gravity pull the weaker object against the stronger object because it has less mass.

yes. it also has to do with their size.

Inverse square law,

force = constant x mass1 x mass2 / distance²

……….m1m2

F = G ———–

……….. d²

when m1 and m2 are the masses of the two bodies and G = gravitational constant. This is a well-known relation.

The constant G is approximately equal to 6.673×10^?11 N m² k/g²

the closer they are together,the more gravitational pull they have on each other
