What is the magnitude of the gravitational force between the earth and a 1 kg object on its surface? (Mass of the earth is 6×1024 kg and radius of the earth is 6.4 × 106 m).
Firstly, we will calculate the magnitude of gravitational force by using the formula:
F = G× (i)
We know that,
Gravitational constant, G = 6.7 × 10-11 Nm2/kg2
Mass of earth, m1 = 6.4 × 1024 kg
Mass of object, m2 = 1kg
Distance between centre of earth and object=Radius of earth, r = 6.4× 106 m
Putting all the values in (i), we get:
F = = 9.8144 N
Therefore, the magnitude of gravitational force is 9.8144 N

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:
