To solve your problem, we'll use Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation which is given as: F = G * (m1 * m2) / r^2 where: F = force of attraction between the two objects, G = gravitational constant (~6.67430 × 10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻²), m1 and m2 = masses of the two objects, r = distance between the centers of the two objects. In your case, m1 = 120 kg, m2 = 480 kg, r = 17 m. Let's plug these numbers into the equation: F = (6.67430 × 10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻²) * ((120 kg * 480 kg) / (17 m)^2) You can use a calculator to solve for F, or you can rearrange the equation slightly to make it easier: F = (6.67430 × 10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻²) * (120 kg * 480 kg) / (289 m²) F = (6.67430 × 10^-11 * 120 * 480) / 289 Remember to follow the order of operations, and you'll get your answer.
