Does an apple exert a gravitational force on the Earth? If so, how large a force? Consider an apple (a) attached to a tree and (b) falling.
Step by step solution
Gravity may be defined as a force between objects with mass. Gravitational force is always attractive. , where G is gravitational constant, M mass of the Earth, m mass of the apple, r distance between the objects.
