Class 9 Science Physics Gravitation
How does the force of gravitation between two objects change when the distance between them is reduced to half?
Solution: We know that According to the law of gravitation, the force between any two objects of mass and is directly proportional to their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

So, if Distance is halved, i.e new

So, New


So, Force of gravitation increases by 4 times when distance reduced by half
