**Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation**

3
Factors Affecting the Gravitational Force mass distance

4
**force varies directly with masses**

decrease mass decreased force force varies directly with masses Fg α m1 m2

5
Distance r increase r force decreased

6
Force varies inversely with distance squared Fg α 1/r2

7
Fg α m1m2 Fg α 1/r2 m1 m2 Fg α r2 Fg slope = G m1 m2/r2

8
G = 6.67 x 10-11 N m2/kg2

9
A 1000 kg car and a 2000 kg truck are 0.50 m apart. Gravitational force: 5.3 x 10-4 N

10
**Computing mass of Earth**

radius of Earth: x 106 m 1.00 kg mass has a weight of 9.81 N mass of Earth: 5.97 x 1024 kg

11
2F 4F

12
¼ F 4F

13
F

14
“g” gravitational field – weight per mass wtg Fg g = = mass m G M = r2 M = planet mass

15
**Effect of changing variables GM g = ----- r2**

if M doubles: if r doubles: if M & r doubles: if r becomes ½: 2g ¼ g ½ g 4g

16
**radius: 53% radius of Earth gravitational field for Mars?**

mass: 11% mass of Earth radius: 53% radius of Earth gravitational field for Mars? 0.39 gE = N/kg

17
**Net gravitational force on bottom mass?**

√3 GM2/s2

18
**G m1 m2 Fg = ---------- = weight r2**

What would happen to your weight if: Earth had twice mass but the same radius: Twice weight Earth had twice radius but same mass: ¼ weight

19
**What is “g” at top of Mt. Everest**

(8848 m elevation)? 9.77 N/kg = 9.77 m/s2
