# If a body of mass 40 kg is kept at a distance of 0.5 m from a body of mass 60 kg, what is the mutual force of attraction between them?

Answer :

Given:

Mass of one body(M)=60 kg

Mass of other body(m)=40 kg

Distance between the bodies(R)=0.5 m

Formula Used:

where

F=Mutual force of attraction between two bodies

G=Universal Gravitational Constant=6.67×10^{-11} Nm^{2}kg^{-2}

M=Mass of one body

m=Mass of other body

R=Distance between the bodies

Putting these values,
