Determine the gravitational force that you exert on another person

  • #1
Hi everyone,

Could someone please help me with this problem?

Homework Statement


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.


Homework Equations


F=Gm1(m2)/r^2


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.
