## Homework Statement

Two identical balls, their centers 24.0cm apart, experience a mutual gravitational force of 5.3×10−6N .Find the ball's mass

de

## Homework Equations

F=Gm1m2/r^2

Isn't this just backwards?

5.3x10^-6=(6.67x10^-11)(m^2)/24^2

6765.28kg? that wasn't right

i thought it may be in g to i made it to 6.67. still not right

Does the radius need to be in cm or m?

## The Attempt at a Solution

i tried it out by using the gravitational force equation
