## How is the force of attraction dependent on the masses of objects and distance between them Class 9?

Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that every point mass in the universe attracts every other point mass with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses, and **inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them**.

## How is the force of attraction dependent on the masses of objects and distance between them CBSE 2014?

If the mass of one of the objects is doubled, then **the force of gravity** between them is doubled. … 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.

## What does the force of attraction between two objects depend on?

Newton’s law also states that the strength of gravity between any two objects depends on two factors: **the masses of the objects and the distance between them**. Objects with greater mass have a stronger force of gravity between them. … Objects that are closer together have a stronger force of gravity between them.

## How is the gravitational force of attraction depend on the mass of object and distance between them?

The force of gravity depends directly upon the masses of the two objects, and **inversely on the square of the distance between them**. This means that the force of gravity increases with mass, but decreases with increasing distance between objects.

Increasing the separation distance between objects decreases the force of attraction or repulsion between the objects. And decreasing the separation distance between objects increases the force of attraction or repulsion between the objects. … Electrostatic force and **distance are inversely related**.

## What is the gravitational force of attraction between two masses?

The gravitational force of attraction between two masses depend on the distance between them is **G=gravitaional constant =k×10−11Nm2kg−2**.

## Why is the value of LG variable on the surface of Earth?

Even on the surface of the Earth, there are local variations in the value of g. These variations are **due to latitude (the Earth isn’t a perfect sphere; it buldges in the middle)**, altitude and the local geological structure of the region.

## What is gravitation class 9th?

Earth **attracts all things towards it through an unseen force of attraction**. This force of attraction is called as gravitation or gravitational pull. You must have noticed that every time you throw an object upwards, it reaches a certain height and then falls down on the earth’s surface.

## What are the factors that influence the force of mutual attraction between Earth and the body?

Since the gravitational force is directly **proportional to the mass of both interacting objects**, more massive objects will attract each other with a greater gravitational force. So as the mass of either object increases, the force of gravitational attraction between them also increases.

## Which is an example of the force of attraction between two objects that have mass?

**Gravity** is an example of the force of attraction between two objects that have mass.

## What happens to the force of gravitational attraction between two small objects?

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**.
