# The Mass of Sun is 2 ✕ 1030 Kg and the Mass of Earth is 6 ✕ 1024 Kg. If the Average Distance Between the Sun and the Earth Be 1.5 ✕ 108 Km - CBSE Class 9 - Science

#### Question

The mass of sun is 2 ✕ 1030 kg and the mass of earth is 6 ✕ 1024 kg. If the average distance between the sun and the earth be 1.5 ✕ 108 km, calculate the force of gravitation between them.

#### Solution

F (gravitational force) = ?
G (gravitational constant) = 6.673 × 10−11 Nm2 kg−2
M (mass of sun) = 2×1030 kg
m (mass of earth)= 6×1024  kg
d (average distance between sun and earth) = 1.5×108 km = 1.5 ×108 ×1000 = 1.5×1011m
F = (GMm)/d^2
= (6.673 xx 10^-11 xx 2 xx 10^30 xx 6 xx 10^24)/(1.5 xx 10^11)^2
= (6.673 xx 10^-11 xx 2 xx 10^30 xx 6 xx 10^24)/(1.5 xx 1.5 xx 10^22)  (10^(24+30-11)=10^43)
= (6.673 xx 2 xx 6 xx 10^43)/(1.5 xx 1.5 xx 10^22)   (10^(43-22)=10^21)
= (6.673 xx 2 xx 6 xx 10^21)/(1.5 xx 1.5)  (10^(43-22)=10^21)
= (80.076 xx 10^21)/(1.5 xx 1.5)
= 35.59 xx 10^21 N = 3.57 xx 10^22 N
Answer : Force of gravity = 3.57 xx 10^22 N
