Question

We can use Newton’s Law of Gravity to measure the gravitational attraction between the moon and a PreCalculus student in a space ship located a distance x above the moon's surface:

F(x)=(350)/(x^(2))

Here F is measured in newtons (N), and x is measured in millions of meters.

a. Graph the function F for values of x between 0 and 10.

b. Use the graph to describe the behavior of the gravitational attraction F as the distance x increases.
