| **Two balls weighing 1 ton each are located at a distance of 1 m between their centers. Determine the force of attraction that acts between the balls.**

Given:

m1 = m2 = 1 t = 1000 kg is the mass of bodies;

G = 6.7 * 10 ^ -11 N * m ^ 2 / kg ^ 2 – gravitational constant.

R = 1 m – distance between bodies.

It is required to find the force of attraction of bodies F.

F = G * m1 * m2 / R ^ 2 = 6.7 * 10 ^ -11 * 1000 * 1000/1 ^ 2 = 6.7 * 10 ^ -5 = 0.000067 N.

Answer: the force of attraction of two bodies is 0.000067 Newton.
