1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Newton showed that a centripetal force acts on an object moving in an orbit that varies A. directly with the distance from the centre of force B. inversely with the distance from the centre of force C. directly with the square of the distance from the centre of force D. inversely with the square of the distance form the centre of force The question above is a question on the assignment that im trying to finish. However, i do not understand what the question is asking, or what he answers mean. What is the square? and how do i know if its inversely or directly? ah!! any suggestions??
