The gravitational force between two objects can be calculated using Newton's law of universal gravitation: F = G * (m1 * m2) / r^2 Where: F is the force of attraction between the two bodies, G is the gravitational constant (6.674 x 10^-11 N(m/kg)^2), m1 and m2 are the masses of the two objects, r is the distance between the centres of the two objects. Given m1 = 120 kg, m2 = 480 kg and r = 17 m. By substituting these values, the formula becomes: F = 6.674 x 10^-11 * (120 * 480) / 17^2 Now you can calculate F by plugging these values into the formula. Remember to follow the correct order of operations - multiplication and division from left to right. Please note that due to the small value of G, the force of gravitational attraction between everyday objects on Earth are very small and often negligible. However, this formula becomes critical when considering larger objects, like planets and stars.
