I was sitting in a park on a bench next to another person and I moved tow times the original distance between the two of us, the force of gravity between me and the other person would be:
1. one-quarter as much
2. one-half as much
3. twice as much
4. 4 times as much

I think it would be one-half as much because the force of gravity diminishes the farther you get away from object, correct or no?

Thank you-the question is above post
