### I have this expression for the gravitational force between 2 masses when the gr term is added:$F=-\frac{GMm}{{r}^{2}}+\frac{4{G}^{2}mM\left(M+m\right)}{{r}^{4}{c}^{2}}$which I got from the internet since I haven't bee able to find a similar expression in any book. But i'm not sure if it's right or needs fixing.Is the second term in the force correct? uto2rimxrs50 2022-05-19 Answered

### In an experiment, an object is released from rest near and above Earth's surface. A student must determine the relationship between the direction of the gravitational force exerted on the object and the change in momentum caused by that force. What data could the student collect to determine the magnitude and direction of the gravitational force and the change in momentum of the object? Justify your choices. Select two answers. vulkanere64t6 2022-05-18 Answered

### Given that the electrical force is so much stronger than gravitational force at atomic levels, why is it that it's the gravitational force between you and the earth that keeps you on the ground rather than the electrical force between you and the earth? lurtzslikgtgjd 2022-05-17 Answered

### An electron and a positron are separated by distance r. Findthe ratio of the gravitational force to the electric force betweenthem. From the result, what can you conclude concerning theforces acting between particles detected in a bubble chamber?(Should gravitational interactions be considered?)

### (a) Calculate the gravitational force exerted on a 5.00 kg baby by a 90 kg father 0.200 m away at birth (assisting so he is close).(b) Calculate the force on the baby due to Jupiter if it is at its closest to the earth, some $6.29×{10}^{11}m$ away, showing it to be comparable to that of the father. The mass of Jupiter is about . Other objects in the room and the hospital building also exert similar gravitational forces. Jayden Mckay 2022-05-13 Answered

### The only known force a planet exerts on Earth is gravitational. (a) Calculate the magnitude of the gravitational force exerted on a 4.20 kg baby by a 100 kg father 0.200 m away at birth (he is assisting, so he is close to the child). (b) Calculate the magnitude of the force on the baby due to Jupiter if it is at its closest distance to Earth, some away. How does the force of Jupiter on the baby compare to the force of the father on the baby? Other objects in the room and the hospital building also exert similar gravitational forces. (Of course, there could be an unknown force acting, but scientists first need to be convinced that there is even an effect, much less that an unknown force causes it.)

### Two balls have their centers 2.0 m apart. One ball has a mass of 8.0 kg. The other has a mass of 6.0 kg. What is the gravitational force between them? Jaeden Weaver 2022-05-13 Answered

### Why do we use gravitational force in earth by relating just the mass of an object with the acceleration produced by the gravitational field:${F}_{g}=m\cdot \stackrel{\to }{g}$And when we're dealing with planets, we use a relation defined by the masses of two planets, distance squared and gravitational constant:${F}_{g}=G\cdot \frac{{M}_{1}\cdot {M}_{2}}{{d}^{2}}$I really don't get why we use just the first relation here on earth, because we're dealing with a interction between two objects... It's because our mass is irrelevant?? fetsBedscurce4why1 2022-05-10 Answered

### Why do we integrate along the whole length while finding the gravitational force between a object of mass (m) and a rod of length L and mass M? Can't we simply use $F=\frac{GmM}{{r}^{2}}\phantom{\rule{thinmathspace}{0ex}}?$? sg101cp6vv 2022-05-10 Answered

### Two objects, with masses ${m}_{1}$ and ${m}_{2}$, attract each other with force $F$. If the mass of ${m}_{1}$ increased by a factor of two then the new gravitational force would be: F/42 F4 FF/2 enclinesbnnbk 2022-05-09 Answered

### A book is lifted upward a vertical distance of 0.800 m. Duringthis displacement, does the gravitational force acting on the book do positivework or negative work? Does the gravitational potential energy of thebook increase or decrease? Blaine Stein 2022-05-09 Answered

### Compare the gravitational attraction between objects on earth and interaction of celestial bodies in space. Which gravitational force is almost negligible? Why? rockandriot0odjn 2022-05-09 Answered

### 1. Why is gravitational force always an attractive force?2. And is the Newtonian formula of gravitational force applicable for very small particles like electrons and protons etc.? From Formula of Gravitational Force, I'm referring to:${F}_{G}=\frac{GMm}{{R}^{2}},$where M and m are the masses of objects.A logical explanation will be much appreciated.
