2 Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation What exerts the force of gravity? Newton concluded that every particle in the universe attracts each other with a gravitational force. F G = G m 1 m 2 r 2
3 Cavendish Experiment In 1798, Henry Cavendish first measured G between two small objects. G = 6.67 x 10 -11 N m 2 /kg 2

4 Example 6-1 Can you attract another person gravitationally? A 50-kg person and a 75-kg person are sitting on a bench so that their centers are about 50 cm apart. Estimate the magnitude of the gravitational force each exerts on the other.
5 6-2 Vector Form of Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation F 12 = - G r 21 m 1 m 2 r 21 2 where: r 12 = - r 21 and therefore: F 12 = - F 21 ^

Example A mass M is ring shaped with radius r . A small mass m is placed at a distance x along the ring’s axis. Show that the gravitational force acting on the mass m due to the ring is directed inward along the x axis and has magnitude 6 F = GMmx ( x 2 + r 2 ) 3 2

### What students are saying

• 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.
