# What happens to the gravitational force between two objects if their masses do not change but the distance between them becomes four times as much?

Practical Physics Tutor

The gravitational force between two bodies reduces 16 times ,as gravitational force is directly proportional to product of the two masses and inversely proportional to square of their distances.

Gravitational force is inversely proportional to square of distance. Therefore 4 times further, which means 16times less gravitational force or pull between the bodies.

Mechanical Engineer

Force decreases by 16 times.

Tutor

The force reduces 16 times in magnitude.

Tutor

decreases

math

1/16 of previous gravitational force

Physics- thats all

force reduces by 1/16

Curiosity is my talent

Since gravitational force is inversely proportional to square of distance , hence 4 times farther means 16times less gravitational force or pull between the bodies. G.F = m*m1*k/d*d

Math magician

Force reduces to 1/16 th of normal force

my students are fools and I am a super fool

The gravitational force will become one sixteenth due to the fact that this force is inversely proportional to the square of the radius.
