## Homework Statement

a. What is the gravitational force on the Moon from the Sun?

b. What is the gravitational force on the Sun from the Moon?

Use 1AU as distance between the Moon and Sun.

Msun = 1.989 x 10^30 kg

Mmoon = 7.35 x 10^22 kg

1AU = 1.4960 x 10^11 m

G = 6.67 x 10^-11

## Homework Equations

[tex]

F = \frac{G M_1 M_2}{R^2}

[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

When using the above equation, I am only able to get the TOTAL gravitational force between objects, not the force of one on the other.

Is there another equation I must use or is there some way to rearrange the variables to get what I want?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!
