What happens to the force between two objects, if the distance between the objects is doubled and tripled?
According to the universal law of gravitation, the force of gravitation between two objects is given by:-
F is inversely proportional to the square of the distances between the objects. If the distance is doubled, then the gravitational force becomes one-fourth of its original value.
Similarly, if the distance is tripled, then the gravitational force becomes one-ninth of its original value.
