Some believe that the positions of the planets at the time of birth influence the newborn. Others deride this and say that the gravitational force exerted on a baby by the obstetrician is greater than that exerted by the planets. To check this claim, first calculate the gravitational force exerted on a 5.7 kg baby by a 87.9 kg doctor who is 1.0 m away.
ok so i am going to use the formula F=G(m1m2)/r^2 and that would be
F=6.67x10^-11(87.9*5.7)/.5^2 which yeilds 1.32 x10^-7 N which is not the right answer
what am i doing wrong
