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 given by the universal law of gravitation, which states that the force is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Because you're reducing the distance between the rocks, the force of attraction would increase, assuming the masses of the rocks remain the same. However, without knowing the initial distance, the masses of the rocks, or any other parameters, it's impossible to provide a specific number for the new force of attraction. If you have more details, I can better assist in calculating the new force of attraction.
