The gravitational force acting on a particle of mass m, on the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

surface of a sphere of radius 10^26 metres and with a mass of 10^52

kg is given by

G x10^52 m / (10^26) ^ 2

The acceleration is given by G x10^52 / (10^26) ^ 2 = 10^ - 11 m/ s^2

This is the magnitude of accleration at which modified newtonian dynamics

becomes a mathematically accurate description of the velocities of stars in spiral galaxies.MOND describes a gravitational force that is stronger than

the usual Newtonian expectation.As the universe expands beyond 10^26 metres,

if MOND is valid as a force law,then we should expect the acceleration of the expansion of the universe at distances greater than 10^26 metres,to be slower than expected.Does anyone agree with this?
