Two bodies A and B in space are attracting each other due to gravitational force. The force of attraction on B due to A is ___ to the force of attraction due to A on B.
According to newtons third law, every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
If A attracting B is the action, then B attracting A is the reaction. So, the force of attraction on B due to A is equal to the force of attraction due to A on B.
The universal law of gravitation states that every object exerts a gravitational force of attraction on every other object. If this is true, why don't we notice such forces? Why don't the two objects in a room move towards each other due to this force?
The earth goes around the sun with a fixed time period due to the gravitational force of attraction between them.
Here the force of gravity (Fg) on earth is the restoring force.
