Question

G = 6.67 ×10−11 m3/kg/s^2

Some people claim that the location of Jupiter can have dramatic consequences on human events on Earth. For comparison to the last problem, what is the force of gravity due to a 100 kg person hugging a 52.0 kg ASTR 110 student. Assume the distance between the students is 0.3 meters.

Step 1

Given,

Mass of first body, m1 = 100 kg

Mass of second body, m2 = 56 kg

Distance between center of their masses, d = 0.3 m

Step 2

From the newton’s law of gravitation.

Step 3

Put the values in t...
