Two 12-kg spheres are placed 400 mm apart. Express the gravitational attraction acting between the spheres as a percentage of their weights on earth.

To determine

The gravitational attraction acting between the spheres as a percentage of their weights on earth.

The spheres are of 12 kg and are placed 400 mm apart.

**Calculation:**

The mass of spheres,

The distance between the spheres,

So, the gravitational force between them,

The weight of each sphere on earth,
