The masses of the earth and moon are 6*10^24kg and 7.4*10^22kg, respectively. The distance between them is 3.84*10^5m. Calculate the gravitational force of attraction between the two. Use G=6.67*10^−11Nm^2 kg^−2

$F=\frac{G{M}_{1}{M}_{2}}{{r}^{2}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}F=\frac{(6.67\times {10}^{-11})(6\times {10}^{24})(7.4\times {10}^{22})}{(3.84\times {10}^{5}{)}^{2}}=2\times {10}^{26}\text{}N$
