Determine the gravitational force that you exert on another person

  1. May 5, 2008 #1
    Hi everyone,

    Could someone please help me with this problem?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Determine the gravitational foce that you exert on another persona 1.00 m away. Assume that you and the other person are point masses of 73.0 kg each.


    2. Relevant equations
    F=Gm1(m2)/r^2


    3. The attempt at a solution

    F=(6.67X10^-11Nm^2/kg)(73.kg)(73.0kg)/1m=3.5X10^-7N

    Thank you very much

    Should be correct...although just remember that [itex]3.55 \times 10^{-7}N=3.6 \times 10^{-7}N[/itex] to 1 dp.
