Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation If two particles with masses m 1 and m 2 are separated by a distance r , then a gravitational force acts along a line joining them, with magnitude given by G is the constant of universal gravitational G = 6.673 x 10 -11 N m² /kg² 3

Universal Gravitation The force that mass 1 exerts on mass 2 is equal and opposite to the force mass 2 exerts on mass 1. The forces form a Newton’s third law of action-reaction pair. 4

Definition of Weight The weight of an object on or above the earth is the gravitational force that the earth exerts on the object. The weight always acts downwards, toward the centre of the earth. On or above another astronomical body, the weight is the gravitational force exerted on the object by that body. SI Unit of Weight: newton (N) 7

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
