Example G.2: Gravitational Force of Attraction

Example:

The gravitational force of attraction between two masses is 90 N. The mass of one object is doubled and the distance between them is halved. What is the new force of attraction between the two masses?

Solution:

Let F be the old force and FN be the new force of attraction between the masses. Using equation (G.2), we have

Substituting F = 90, we get FN = 8 x 90 = 720 N.
