# What Happens to the Force Between Two Objects, If the Masses of Both Objects Are Doubled? - Physics

What happens to the force between two objects, if the masses of both objects are doubled?

#### Solution

According to the universal law of gravitation, the force of gravitation between two objects is given by:-

F=(Gm_1m_2)/r^2

F is directly proportional to the product of masses of the objects. If the masses of both the objects are doubled, then the gravitational force becomes four times the original value.
