    One problem

    1.) Two bowling balls each have a mass of 15.8 kg. They are located next to one another with their centers 1.8 cm apart. What gravitational force do they exert on each other? (Use G = 6.670 10-11 N · m 2/kg2.)

    This is a really simple question. You just have to apply Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation.
