Hey everyone!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've done http://www.fourmilab.ch/gravitation/foobar/" [Broken] and i find it interesting how objects of any mass just randomly attract each other. Anyway, i always wanted to find out how long it should take for a mass in this experiment to gravitate towards the other. The problem is it isn't like doing it on earth where at the surface everything accelerates at 9.8m/s. The only relevant equation for acceleration in this case would be

G*M/r^2

G=6.67*10^-8cm³/g-sec²

m=mass in grams

r=distance in cm

I just learned aLITTLEcalculus but so far i can only calculate how long it will take for an dropped object to hit the ground. I was hoping i could use this but since the acceleration is always changing i don't know how to do this out. Can someone help??

Thanks
