what is the inverse square law equation?

  • physics -

    y = C/r^2
    is a simplified form of an inverse square law.

    y might be the gravitational force or weight of an object, and r the radial distance from the center of some planet. C is a constant.

    The same equation applies to electric field around a point charge, or the intensity of sound or light from a point source.
