Formula for acceleration?

  1. Jan 15, 2009 #1
    Does anyone remember the formula used for finding the acceleration of two bodies towards each other, such as the sun towards the earth?

    Sure. Force causes acceleration (remember the formula for that?). The force between two masses is another formula that is good to commit to memory. Google gravitational force, and click on the first hit.

    Is this for homework? I can move the thread to Homework Help, Intro Physics.
