Where, F is the force, \(m_1\) and \(m_2\) are masses of the objects interacting r is the distance between the center of the masses; G is the gravitational constant (×10 −11 m 3 ⋅kg −1 ⋅s −2); This equation gives the magnitude of the force and since it is an attractive force it will always be directed towards the other object.
