A carefully designed experiment can measure the gravitational force between masses of 6 kg. Given that the density of iron is 7860 kg/m3, what is the gravitational force between two 6.00-kg iron spheres that are touching?

The answer is 1.87e-07 N. How do I get this answer?

  • Physics -

    V=4πR³/3
    Density ρ=m/V = 3m/4πR³ = >
    R=cuberoot(3m/4π ρ)

    the gravitational constant
    G =6.67•10^-11 N•m²/kg²,

    F =G•m1•m2/R²

  • Physics -

    Sorry! Force is
    F =G•m1•m2/(2R)²

  • Physics -

    Thank you!

  • Physics -

    How do you figure out the R-value?

  • Physics -

    Never mind.
