# Problem: Calculate the magnitude of the gravitational force between two 1-kg bodies that are 1 m apart?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are required to apply Newton's law of universal gravitation.

Newton's law of gravity:

$\overline{){\mathbf{F}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{G}\mathbf{M}\mathbf{m}}{{\mathbf{R}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}$G is the gravitation constant, M is the mass of the first object, m is the mass of the second object, and R is the separation between the masses.
