Gravitational Force Calculator

The force that attracts an object toward the center of the earth is called gravity.

The force that attracts all the masses in the universe, especially the earth's mass for bodies near its surface is called gravitational force.


Formula of Gravitational Force Calculator

To find the area of a circle, you can use the formula listed below:

\[F = G\left( {\frac{{{m_1}{m_2}}}{{{r^2}}}} \right)\]


F = gravitational force

G = gravitational constant has a constant value (6.674×10-11 N·m²/kg²).

m1 = mass of object 1

m2 = mass of object 2

r = distance between two objects

Calculate the gravitational force acting on a body at the earth's surface if the mass (m1) of the body is 1500kg mass, (m2) of the earth is 5.972 × 1024 kg, the radius (r) of the earth is 6.38 x 106 m and gravitational constant (G) 6.67 x 10-11

Given data

m1 = 1500kg
m2 = 5.972 × 1024 kg
r = 6.38 x 106 m
G = 6.67 x 10-11

To Find

force of gravity = F = ?


as we know the gravitational force is given as

\(F = G\left( {\frac{{{m_1}{m_2}}}{{{r^2}}}} \right)\)

Putting values in the formula:

\(F = \left( {6.67{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{ - 11}}} \right)\left( {\frac{{\left( {1500} \right)\left( {5.972{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{24}}} \right)}}{{{{\left( {6.38{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^6}} \right)}^2}}}} \right)\)

\(F = \left( {6.67{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{ - 11}}} \right)\left( {\frac{{\left( {{\rm{8,958 }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{24}}} \right)}}{{\left( {6.38{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^6}} \right)\left( {6.38{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^6}} \right)}}} \right)\)

\(F = \left( {6.67{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{ - 11}}} \right)\left( {\frac{{{\rm{8,958 }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{24}}}}{{40.8321 \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{12}}}}} \right)\)

\(F = \left( {6.67{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{ - 11}}} \right)\left( {219.386{\rm{ }} \times {\rm{ }}{{10}^{12}}} \right)\)

\(F = 14633N\)

So, we have the area of a circle of 1017.36 m2
