**Q.**

A solid sphere of mass $M$ and radius $R$ has a spherical cavity of radius $\frac{R}{2}$ such that the centre of the cavity is at a distance of $\frac{R}{2}$ from the centre of the sphere. A point mass $m$ is placed inside the cavity at a distance of $\frac{R}{4}$ from the centre of the sphere. The gravitational pull between the sphere and the point mass $m$ is

$\frac{11GMm}{{R}^{2}}$

$\frac{14GMm}{{R}^{2}}$

$\frac{GMm}{2{R}^{2}}$

**Q.**

Why is the gravitational law called the universal law of gravitation?

**Q.**

The mass density of a planet of radius$R$ varies with the distance$r$ from its center as$\rho \left(r\right)={\rho}_{0}(1-({r}^{2}/{R}^{2}\left)\right)$. Then the gravitational field is maximum at:

$r=1/\surd 3R$

$r=(\surd 3/\surd 4)R$

$r=R$

$r=(\surd 5/\surd 9)R$

**Q.**

What is the realation between small g and capital G

**Q.**

Apple falls towards the earth but the earth does not move towards the apple because

acceleration is inversely proportional to mass, so acceleration of earth is negligible

only earth exerts force on apple, apple does not exert force on earth

apple experiences greater force than the earth

only apple exerts force on earth, earth does not exert force on apple
