(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A solid sphere of uniform density has a mass of 3.0×10^4 kg and a radius of 1.0 m. What is the gravitational force due to the sphere on a particle of mass 1.0 kg located at a distance of 0.50 m from the center of the sphere?

2. Relevant equations

F = M1*M2*G / r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

F = (1*3E4*6.67E-11) / (0.5)^2

F = 8.00E-6 N

Am I doing something wrong because the question is asking for the force of a particle inside the sphere?
