Please, can someone help me with this?
A neutron star and a black hole are 2.400e+12 m from each other at a certain point in their orbit. The neutron star has a mass of 2.78×1030 kg and the black hole has a mass of 9.94×1030 kg. What is the magnitude of the gravitational attraction between the two?
physics (Newton -
Use the same Newtonian formula that you would use for any other pair if masses, M1 and M2.
F = G*M1*M2/R^2
G is the universal constant of gravity, 6.67*10^-11 N*m^2/kg^2
F is the force
