Question

# What happens to the gravitational force (F) between two bodies if their masses are doubled, and the distance between them is also doubled?

- It doubles up
- It gets halved
- It remains the same
- It becomes ¾ of F

Hint:

### Recall the formula of gravitational force.

## The correct answer is: It remains the same

### The correct option is c)It remains the same.

F=

Now M= 2M

R2 = 2R2

F=

Cancelling 2 by 2 , the force will remain the same.

### Joseph wanted to study the dependence of the gravitational force of attraction between two bodies on the mass of one body. Therefore, he did the required calculations by keeping the mass of the first body and their distance of separation constant and simply varying the mass of the second body. He calculated the value of the gravitational force between those two bodies 10 times by taking different masses for the second body. He then plotted a graph of the calculated data taking the force along the y-axis and the mass of the second body along the x-axis. How would the graph look like?
