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 dictated by Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation. This law states that the force between two bodies is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. In your question, you didn't provide the initial distance between the two rocks, nor the weights of the dropped rocks. Therefore, it won't be possible to calculate the new force. According to law of gravitation, (F1 / F2) = (R2^2 / R1^2) Where F denotes the forces and R denotes the respective distances. We would need to know F1 and R1 to calculate F2, the new force when the distance is reduced to 250 meters.
