Gravitational force between the moon and the Earth

  1. Feb 2, 2009 #1
    Hi, I am just wandering based on the formula..

    F = GMm/r^2


    Is the gravitational force exerted by the earth on the moon is the same as the gravitational force exerted by the moon on earth ?

    It should be the same right?
    Both lies on a same radius..

    Can someone clarify this..

    Thanks..

    Hint

    Look up Newton's laws on Google. You should easily be able to figure it out looking an Newton's three laws of motion.
