# Newtons law of gravitation

## Homework Statement

Which of the following statements about Newton’s Universal Law of Gravity is false?

A. The heavier mass exerts a force on the lighter mass that is equal but opposite to the force the lighter mass exerts on the heavier mass.
B. A heavy mass from far away can exert the same gravitational force on you as a light mass that is nearby.
C. Masses under the influence of the gravitational force accelerate towards each other at the rate of 6.67 x 10-11 m/s2.
D. All of the above are true.

## Homework Equations

F=$$6.673(10)\ \times\ 10^{-11}\ m^{3} kg^{-1} s^{-2}$$*($$_{}M1$$$$_{}M2$$)/$$\frac{}{}r^{}2$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

The heavier mass could exert a force equal dependent on distance from the second mass.
