just a really question about gravity, using the formula:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F = (G * m1 * m2 ) / r^2

where F is the force of attraction caused by gravity, G is the gravitational constant (6.673E-11), m1 is the first mass, m2 is the second mass, and r is the radius/distance between the two centers of mass.

the force that is caused, is it shared between the two bodies or do each recieve that much force, for example if I just stick these numbers in:

m1 = 1000000

m2 = 1000000

r^2 = 125

then I get a force of .53384 newtons

so do each of these bodies recievce the full .53384 newtons, or does it split up bwtween them and each gets half, .26692?
