a question regarding Universal Law Of Gravitation.
If the clouds are 50 km. high , what is its proportional distance to a globe which is one foot in diameter ? Thank you :))

The diameter of Earth = 12,756 km = 12,756,000 m
1 foot = 0.3048 m
0.3048 / 12756000 = 2.38946378175 * 10 ^ -8
50 km = 50,000 m
50,000 * 2.38946378175 * 10 ^ -8 = 0.00119473189 m
1 m = 1000 mm
0.00119473189 m = 1.19473189 mm
aprox. 1.2 mm
