## Main Question or Discussion Point

If the separation between two objects (say, me and my chair) is zero, shouldn't the gravitational force between those two objects be infinite because in the equation for force you divide by r?

And I understand that the centers of my atoms are not literally touching the chair, so maybe the separation is miniscule... but as they get so close that they are only TINY distances apart, the gravitational force should at least APPROACH infinity? But this seems to defy logic...
