**drwls**, Tuesday, November 22, 2011 at 10:39amSince the force is given by

F = (constant)*M1*M2/R^2 ,

The new force, after the changes, will be higher by a factor (1.6)^2/(0.5)^2 = 10.24

That means there is a 924% increase.

You do not have to know the actual masses and distances to make that conclusion.

M1 and M2 are the two masses, and R is the distance between them.
