the gravitational force between two object is F . How will this force will change when the distance between them is reduce to half?

  • physics -

    The force of gravity is dependent on the two masses involved,if you halved the distance then force of gravitation will becomes double of the orignal

  • physics -

    The attraction force is inversely proportional to the SQUARE of the distance between them. Therefore it becomes four times higher.
