(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A bowling ball (mass = 5.9 kg, radius = 0.11 m) and a billiard ball (mass = 0.36 kg, radius = 0.028 m) may each be treated as uniform spheres. What is the magnitude of the maximum gravitational force that each can exert on the other?

2. Relevant equations

F=-Gm1m2/r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

6.67*10^-11*5.9*.36/-(.11+.028)^2 = -7.43913043 × 10^-9 N

right?
