Enter the mass of two different objects and the distance between the objects into the calculator to determine the attraction force.

## Attraction Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Attraction Force.

AF = G * m1*m2 / d^2

• Where AF is the attraction force (N)
• G is the gravitational constant of attraction (6.67*10^-11 Nm^2/kg^20
• m1 is the mass of the first object (kg)
• m2 is the mass of the second object (kg)
• d is the distance between the objects (m)

## What is an Attraction Force?

Definition:

An attraction force, commonly called the gravitational force, is a fundamental force of nature that arises from the gravity between two objects of mass.

## How to Calculate Attraction Force?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Attraction Force.

First, determine the mass of the first object. In this example, the mass of the first object is found to be 1000kg.

Next, determine the mass of the second object. For this problem, the mass of the second object is found to be 2000kg.

Next, determine the distance between the objects. In this case, the distance between the objects is measured to be 6m.

Finally, calculate the Attraction Force using the formula above:

AF = G * m1*m2 / d^2

AF = 6.67*10^-11* 1000*2000 / 6^2

AF = 3.705e^-6
