To sketch: The graph of the function for the values of x between 0 and 10.
Substitute values 1 to10 for x in the given function and prepare a table as shown below.
Use the above table and plot the points x on horizontal axis and the corresponding values of on vertical axis.
Draw the graph as shown below in Figure (1).
From Figure (1), it is noticed that the value of is decreasing.
To explain: The behavior of the gravitational attraction as the distance x increases.
From Figure (1), it is clearly visible that the value of decreases as the value of x increases. The function F is inversely proportional to . Therefore, the gravitational attraction decreases as the distance of the spaceship and the moon increases.
