Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation
Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation states that:
the force of gravity between two masses in the universe is directly
proportional to the product of the masses and inversely proportional to the
square of the distance between their centers.
In order to represent this as an equation we must introduce a constant G,
called the universal gravitational constant.
FG =
Gm1 m2
d2
• where FG is the magnitude of the gravitational attraction between any
two masses, in N
• m1 is the mass of one object, in kg
• m2 is the mass of the other object, in kg
• Δd is the distance between the centers of the objects, in m
• G is the universal gravitational constant, 6.67x 10-11 Nm2/kg2.
Question:
Two people are sitting on a bench 2m apart. If one has a mass of 60 kg and
the other a mass of 80 kg, what is the force of gravitational attraction
between them?
Acceleration Due to Gravity
All objects near the Earth fall with the same constant acceleration. This is
referred to as acceleration due to gravity, which has a magnitude of
approximately 9.8 m/s2 anywhere near the surface of the Earth. If an object
is in free fall then the object will accelerate downward at 9.8 m/s2.
