A heavier mass m1 and a lighter mass m2 are 18.0 cm apart and experience a gravitational force of attraction that is 9.70 10-9 N in magnitude. The two masses have a combined value of 5.65 kg. Determine the value of each individual mass.

  • physics -

    the gravitational constant G =6.67•10⁻¹¹ N•m²/kg²,
    F =G•m₁•m₂/R²
    m₁=m
    m₂=5.65-m
    F =G•m •(5.65-m)/R²

    Solve for m
