Universal Gravitation Assessment 1. Calculate the gravitational force between two 1.0 x 10 6 kg masses as the distance between the particles increases from 1 meter to 100 meters. Record these values in the table below: Distance (m) Force (N) 1 2 3 4 5 2. Use the axes provided below to make a graph of gravitational force as a function of distance for the two objects above. Forces vs. Distance Distance (m) Force (N) 3. From the graph of Force vs. Distance, stat the mathematical relationship between force and distance. 4. Describe how the gravitational force changes as the mass of one of the objects increases. 5. Use the axes provided below to draw a graph of force as a function of mass as the mass increases from 1.0 x 10 6 kg to 1.0 x 10 7 kg.
