## What happens to the gravitational force between two objects if the mass between them is halved?

Where G is the gravitational constant, is the mass of first object and is the mass of second object and is the distance between both the objects. When is halved, which means , then force of gravitation becomes . So, gravitational force becomes four times.

### What happens to the gravitational force as two objects that are the same mass come closer together?

The gravitational force between two objects becomes weaker if the two objects are moved apart and stronger if they are brought closer together; that is, the force depends on the distance between the objects. The amount of this acceleration is inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

**Can two objects be the same distance?**

Yes you can distribute objects in equal distance.

**What happens when you put the same amount of force on two objects with different masses?**

The second law shows that if you exert the same force on two objects of different mass, you will get different accelerations (changes in motion). The effect (acceleration) on the smaller mass will be greater (more noticeable).

## What happens to the gravitational force between two objects if the distance between them is tripled?

Newton’s law:- Force of attraction between any two material particles is directly proportional to the product of masses of the particles and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. When the distance between the objects is tripled then force between them is one ninth.

### How does distance between two objects affect the gravitational force?

Since gravitational force is inversely proportional to the square of the separation distance between the two interacting objects, more separation distance will result in weaker gravitational forces. So as two objects are separated from each other, the force of gravitational attraction between them also decreases.

**What about comparing two moving objects at the same time?**

DIAGONAL LINE in ANY direction indicates acceleration. What about comparing two moving objects at the same time? Both the dashed and solid line show increasing speed. Both lines reach the same top speed, but the solid one takes longer.

**What is the distance between distance and displacement?**

Distance is a scalar quantity that refers to “how much ground an object has covered” during its motion. Displacement is a vector quantity that refers to “how far out of place an object is”; it is the object’s overall change in position.

## What happens when two objects with the same mass collide?

When two objects with the same mass collide, Newton’s laws tell us that they will accelerate the same amount but in opposite directions. Recall that force, velocity, and acceleration have both magnitude and direction. We use positive and negative signs to indicate the direction of each of these quantities.

### Do the two forces act on the same objects?

The action and reaction force always act on different objects. Two forces acting on the same object, even if they have the same magnitude and point in opposite direction, never form an action-reaction pair.

**How do you find the force between two objects with different masses?**

Two objects with masses m and M are separated by a distance d. If the separation d remains fixed and the masses of the objects are increased to the values 3m and 3M respectively, the force will be 9 times as great.

**How do you calculate the gravity of an object?**

What is the gravity equation? Use the following formula to calculate the gravitational force between any two objects: F = GMm/R². where: F stands for gravitational force. It is measured in newtons and is always positive. It means that two objects of a certain mass always attract (and never repel) each other;

## Does every piece of mass have the same magnitude of velocity?

Recall that in our derivation of this equation, each piece of mass had the same magnitude of velocity, which means the whole piece had to have a single distance r to the axis of rotation. However, this is not possible unless we take an infinitesimally small piece of mass dm, as shown in (Figure).
