## What is the attraction between masses?

**Gravitational force** -an attractive force that exists between all objects with mass; an object with mass attracts another object with mass; the magnitude of the force is directly proportional to the masses of the two objects and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the two objects.

## What is the force of attraction between all masses in the universe?

**Gravity** is a force of attraction that exists between any two masses, any two bodies, any two particles. Gravity is not just the attraction between objects and the Earth. It is an attraction that exists between all objects, everywhere in the universe.

## What is the natural attraction between objects?

Every object in the universe — stars, planets, moons, even you—has **gravity**. Gravity is a force of attraction between all objects. Isaac Newton. How does gravity work?

## What causes masses to attract?

Since the **gravitational force** is directly proportional to the mass of both interacting objects, more massive objects will attract each other with a greater gravitational force. So as the mass of either object increases, the force of gravitational attraction between them also increases.

## Which is an example of the force of attraction between two objects that have mass?

**Gravity** is an example of the force of attraction between two objects that have mass.

## How do you find the force of attraction between two masses?

The mathematical formula for gravitational force is **F=GMmr2 F = G Mm r 2** where G is the gravitational constant.

## What is the force of attraction between Earth and Moon?

The **gravitational force** of attraction between the moon(mass=7.36×10^22 kg) and the earth(5.96×10^24 kg) , taking the distance between the moon and the earth as 3.8×10^8 m, is ? *Pls show the working of the numerical. Even the cancellations. *

## What is the gravitational force between two objects attractive at large distances only?

Newton’s Law of Gravitation tells that gravitational attractive force between two objects is **directly proportional to the product of the masses and inversely proportional to the square of the separation distance**.

## How the masses of objects affect the gravitational force between them?

The force of gravity depends **directly upon the masses of the two objects**, and inversely on the square of the distance between them. This means that the force of gravity increases with mass, but decreases with increasing distance between objects.

## What happens to the force of gravitational attraction between two small objects if the mass of each object is doubled and the distance between their centers is doubled?

If the mass of both of the objects is doubled, then **the force of gravity between them is quadrupled**; and so on. … If the separation distance between two objects is doubled (increased by a factor of 2), then the force of gravitational attraction is decreased by a factor of 4 (2 raised to the second power).
