The gravitational force between two objects can be calculated using the following formula from physics: F = G * m1 * m2 / d^2 where F is the gravitational force, G is the gravitational constant (6.674 x 10^-11 N(m/kg)^2), m1 and m2 are the masses of the objects, and d is the distance between the centers of the objects. You are solving for d, so let's rearrange the formula: d = sqrt(G * m1 * m2 / F) Now, let's substitute in your values: m1 = 4.2 x 10^5 Kg, m2 = 7.8 x 10^4 Kg, F = 120 N, d = sqrt((6.674 x 10^-11 N(m/kg)^2) * (4.2 x 10^5 Kg) * (7.8 x 10^4 Kg) / 120 N) Calculate the above expression to find the value for d, which will be measure in meters. You should use a scientific calculator for this computation.
