R3-4 Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation r m m G F 2 2 1 = The meaning of each term: F : Gravitational force on object 1 from object 2. G : Universal gravitational constant = 6.673 x 10 –11 N m 2 /kg 2 . 1 m : Mass of object 1. 2 m : Mass of object 2. 2 r : Center distance from object 1 to object 2, squared. : Unit vector from object 1 to object 2.
R3-5 If Gravity Varies As 1/r 2 , Where Does g = 9.8 m/s 2 Fit In? Consider the force on an object near the surface of the earth. (Assume the earth is a sphere and ignore rotation effects.) R = radius of the earth. M = mass of the earth. m = mass of the object. g m R M G m R M m G F 2 2 = = = (What is the direction?) g = 9.8 m/s 2 only seems constant because we don’t go very far from the surface of the earth.

Gravity is a Conservative Force Since the force goes to zero at infinite distance, we set the gravitational potential energy to zero there also (it's the only unique point): 2 ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) grav grav grav R R grav R U R U U R
