The Gravitational Force Calculator will calculate the gravitational force exerted between two objects with masses M and m respectively, which have a distance R from centre to centre.
|The gravitational force is N|
|Gravitational force calculation|
|Fg = G × M × m/R2 |
Fg = × × /2
Fg = /
|Gravitational Force Caculator Input Values|
|Mass of the planet (M) kg|
|Mass of the lightest object (m) kg|
|Distance between objects from centre to centre (R)|
|Gravitational Constant (G) N∙m2/kg2|
Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations are available below. As you enter the specific factors of each gravitational force calculation, the Gravitational Force Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the Physics formula elements with each element of the gravitational force calculation. You can then email or print this gravitational force calculation as required for later use.
