In another article we have discussed Gravity and Gravitation, **Newton’s universal law of gravitation** and the formula for gravitational force. Now, in this article we are going to learn how to calculate the gravitational force of attraction between two objects like Earth and Sun, Earth and Moon, electron and proton, etc.

**How to calculate the gravitational force between two objects?**

One can find the gravitational force of attraction between two objects by using the formula for Newton’s law of gravitational force. If **m _{1}** and

**m**be the masses of two objects separated by a distance

_{2}**r**, then the formula for gravitational force is,

\small {\color{Blue} F=G\frac{m_{1}m_{2}}{r^{2}}}. Where, **G** is the Universal gravitational constant.

To find the gravitational force between two objects we need to use this equation. Obviously, we have to know the values of masses of two objects and the distance between the objects. And, the value of G in SI unit is **6.67×10 ^{-11} N.m^{2}Kg^{-2}** and in CGS unit it is

**6.67×10**.

^{-8}dyn.cm^{2}g^{-2}**Gravitational force between the Earth and Sun**

The **mass of Earth** is **M _{E}** = 5.972×10

^{24}kg \small \approx 6×10

^{24}kg

The mass of the Sun or the **solar mass** is **M _{s}** = 1.989×10

^{30}Kg \small \approx 2×10

^{30}Kg

And the average distance between the Sun and the Earth is **r**= 1.496×10^{11} m

So, the gravitational force between the Earth and Sun is, \small F= 6.67\times 10^{-11}\times \frac{6\times 10^{24}\times 2\times 10^{30}}{(1.496\times 10^{11})^{2}}.

or, the gravitational force between the Earth and the Sun is, **F** = 3.576×10^{22} Newton.

**Gravitational force between Earth and Moon**

The mass of the Earth is **M _{E}** = 5.972×10

^{24}kg \small \approx 6×10

^{24}kg

The mass of the Moon is **M _{m}** = 7.348×10

^{22}Kg

And the average distance between the Earth and the Moon is, **r** = 3.844×10^{8} m

So, the gravitational force between the Earth and the Moon is, \small F= 6.67\times 10^{-11}\times \frac{6\times 10^{24}\times 7.348\times 10^{22}}{(3.844\times 10^{8})^{2}}.

or, **F** = 1.99×10^{20} Newton.

This is the gravitational force of attraction between Earth and Moon.

**Gravitational force between electron and proton** **for the first orbit of a hydrogen atom**

Mass of an electron is **M _{e}** = 9.11×10

^{-31}Kg

Mass of a proton is, **M _{p}** = 1.673×10

^{-27}kg

The distance between the electron and the proton is equal to the **radius of first bohr orbit**, **r** = 0.529×10^{-10} m

So, the gravitational force between the electron and proton is \small F= 6.67\times 10^{-11}\times \frac{9.11\times 10^{-31}\times 1.673\times 10^{-27}}{(0.529\times 10^{-10})^{2}}

or, **F** = 3.63×10^{-47} Newton.

This is the gravitational force between a proton and an electron in the first bohr orbit.

So, in this article we learned how to calculate the Gravitational force between two objects separated by a distance. If you have any doubt on this topic you can ask me in the comment section.

**Newton’s universal gravitational law**

I discovered a new simple time formula. As it is known, every simple

physics formula explains a law of nature. My formula says, ‘In a

physical event there is always as much time as the energy amount. That

is, “The more energy there is, the more time there is.’’ And vice

versa. Please can you evaluate my website and

articles?

Special Relativity Theory (SRT) equations revealed that mass and time are

proportional.

t / t’ = m / m’

My ‘Timeflow’=’Time’/’Energy’ Formula makes a small but important

contribution to this. It expresses that the relation of mass to time is equal

to the amount of mc2 energy of the mass, which is 9×10’16 s or

2,851,927,903.26… years for 1 kg of mass outside the gravitational fields.

Very small free particles in space must be observed by organizations such as

NASA or ESA, only then my proposal will be verified.

In addition,The flow of the thought energy intensity in our brain is

body pain, unhappiness and boredom, joy, happiness and love,

sleep, and finally death, respectively, from high energy to low

energy. At the moment

to sleep, if we had a good sleep, our thought energy is very close to

zero or zero. When the energy flow intensity increases in our brain,

according to the ‘Timeflow Formula (Timeflow=Time/Energy). The

timeflow will slow down. As the energy density (power) decreases, the

timeflow will accelerate. In the case of sleep and death, the timeflow

will be infinite. The timeflow formula explains very clearly and

simply that this situation, which is perceived as psychological time

is actually a purely physical event. I think it would be very useful

for psychology experts to evaluate the ‘Timeflow’ Formula and the

philosophical interpretation of the formula.
