Question: Two rocks are close to each other in space. An attractive force of 4 newtons (N) acts on each of the rocks. If the distance between the rocks is reduced to 250 meters (m), what would be the force of attraction acting on each rock?

The force of attraction between two objects in space is determined by Newton's law of universal gravitation. However, this law requires knowing the masses of both objects, which are not given in your question. The formula is: F = G * (m1 * m2)/d^2 Where: F - the force of attraction between the two bodies m1 and m2 - the masses of the two bodies d - the distance between the two bodies G - the gravitational constant Without knowing the masses of the rocks, we cannot accurately calculate the change in force when the distance changes. However, generally speaking, if the distance between the two objects decreases, the force will increase, given that the masses of the objects remain constant. But without specific masses, we can't provide you with the exact new force.
