# Write the formula to find the magnitude of the gravitational force between the earth and an object on the surface of the earth.

Answer :

The formula to find the magnitude of the gravitational force between the earth and an object on the surface of the earth is:

Gravitational force, *F = G* ×

Where,

G = Gravitational constant

M = Mass of the earth

m = Mass of the object

And R is Radius of the earth

Rate this question :

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)
