Newton’s Universal Law of Gravity 1) F acts along the line connecting the centers of objects “Central Force” (for spherical objects) 2) F points toward M (attractive force) 3) Newton says: F = G=6.67 x 10 -11 [m 3 /Kg s 2 ] G M m r 2 for special case on the Earth’s surface, this acceleration is: g = 9.81 m/s 2 G is a very small number! r M m F= force of gravity on m (M) due to M (m) F F 10a-1
