How does the force of attraction between the two bodies depend upon their masses and distance between them? A student thought that two bricks tied together would fall faster than a single one under the action of gravity. Do you agree with his hypothesis or not? Comment.
No, because due to gravity is independent of mass of the falling object. It depends on mass of the planet and distance between centers of planet and object.
However, force of attraction between two object of mass m1 and m2, separated by a distance R is

Universal law of gravitation states that every object exerts a gravitational force of attraction on every other object. If this is true, why don’t we notice such forces? Why don’t the two objects in a room move towards each other due to this force? (Picture)Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - Physics
Two particles are places at some distance from each other. If, keeping the distance between them unchanged, the mass of each of the two particles is doubled, the value of gravitational force between them will become:
A. 1/4 times B. 1/2 times
C. 4 times D. 2 timesLakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - Physics
