Find the change in the force of gravity between two planets when the masses of both planets are doubled, but the distance between them remains the same. Please include your work!

    Force = G times (m1 x m2)/r^2
    If you double the masses your have 4 times the force. since the distance is the same and the "G" is a constant.
