Unformatted text preview: -No such thing as a free force, they are always balanced Gravity Continuous force Baseball example: NII: F [E->BB] = m[BB]*a[BB] NIII: baseball pulls on earth, as well as vice versa. Newtons law of universal gravitation : Thought experiment: there exists some speed at which something will constantly fall around the earth (orbit). From planetary data: high velocity, high acceleration to keep it in orbit-Distance small, high velocity. Farther planets go slower F = [m1m2 / r^2]G G = newtons gravitational constant = 6.67 E -11 Nm^2/kg^2...
