Textbook Problem

A woman is standing on the Earth. In terms of magnitude, is her gravitational force on the Earth (a) equal to, (b) less than, or (c) greater than the Earth’s gravitational force on her?

To determine
The magnitude of the gravitational force on Earth due to the woman.

Explanation

According to Newton’s third law, action and reaction forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. Action and reaction act on two different objects.

From Newton’s law of Gravitation, the formula for gravitational force is,

F=Gmemwr2

  • G is the gravitational constant.
  • me is the mass of earth.
  • ma is the mass of woman
