Hi everyone,

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 $3.55 \times 10^{-7}N=3.6 \times 10^{-7}N$ to 1 dp.
