13-14 Newton’s Law of Gravity The gravitational force (in Newton) between two objects with mass and (in kg), separated by the distance (in meters) is given by Newton’s Law of Gravity,
13 Find the gravitational force between the satellites in stationary earth orbit. apart, each with a mass of .
The gravitational force between the satellites.
The distance between the satellites is .
The mass of each satellite is .
The formula for gravitational force is,
Here, is the gravitational force, is the gravitational constant with value , and are the masses of the objects and is the distance between the objects.
The significant figures in a number are one from first nonzero digit to the last nonzero digit when reading from left to right.
When multiplying or dividing, round off the final result so that it has as many as significant digits as in the given values with the fewest number of significant digits.
Substitute for and for , for and for in equation to calculate
