Question

# What happens to the gravitational force (F) between two bodies if the mass of a body is doubled and the distance between them is tripled:

- (2/3) F
- (5/3) F
- (2/9) F
- (5/9) F

Hint:

### The gravitational force is directly proportional to the mass of objects and indirectly proportional to the distance between them.

## The correct answer is: (2/9) F

### The correct option is b)(2/9) F.

Here g is gravitational constant, M is mass of object 1, m is mass of object 2 and R is the distance between the objects.

### Joseph wanted to study the dependence of the gravitational force of attraction between two bodies on the mass of one body. Therefore, he did the required calculations by keeping the mass of the first body and their distance of separation constant and simply varying the mass of the second body. He calculated the value of the gravitational force between those two bodies 10 times by taking different masses for the second body. He then plotted a graph of the calculated data taking the force along the y-axis and the mass of the second body along the x-axis. How would the graph look like?

### Sherlin wanted to study the dependence of the gravitational force of attraction between two bodies on the distance of separation. Therefore, she did the required calculations by keeping the masses of the two bodies constant and simply varying their distance of separation. She calculated the value of the gravitational force between those two bodies 10 times at different distances of separation. She then plotted a graph of the calculated data taking the force along the y-axis and the distance of separation along the x-axis. How would the graph look like?
