The gravitational attraction between two masses can be discovered by using Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation. The formula to find the gravitational force (F) is: F = G * (m1 * m2) / r^2 where: - F is the force of gravity between the two objects (in Newtons) - G is the universal gravitational constant (approximately 6.67 * 10^-11 N(m/kg)^2) - m1 and m2 are the two masses (in kg) - r is the distance between the centers of the two masses (in m) Here, - m1 = 120 kg - m2 = 480 kg - r = 17 m - G = 6.67 * 10^-11 N(m/kg)^2 Substituting these values into the formula we get: F = 6.67 * 10^-11 * (120 * 480) / (17^2) Now you just need to calculate this to get the answer.
