hey...heres a quesiton thats been bugging me "The earth and the moon attract each other with a gravitational force. How does the force acting on the more massive earth compare to the force acting on the moon?" Choices: a.) there is a greater force acting on the earth. b.)the same force is acting on both the earth and the moon. c.)there is a greater force acting on the moon. d.) not enough information exists to determine the force. my answer: the same force is acting on both the earth and the moon. but im not sure..according to Newton's Third Law of Motion, the gravitational forces on each object are equal. Gravitational forces act between any two objects and always pull one towards the other. buut..gravitational force depends on the mass of each object and how far apart they are...so im confused...is there more force acting on the earth or is it equal?
