b.2 spherical balls are placed so their centres are 2.6m apart. The force between the balls is 2.75x10^-12N. What is the mass of each ball if one ball is twice the mass of the other ball?

- physics please help :) -
**drwls**, Wednesday, December 9, 2009 at 12:37am(a) Solve F = 5.42x10^-71 N = G*m^2/(1)^2

m is the electron mass and g is the universal cnstant of gravity.

That equatiuon can be solved for m.

(b) Let the ball masses be M and 2M

F = 2.75x10^-12N = G*(2M^2)/(2.6)^2

Solve for M
