Bowling Ball Force

SATPHY-ZLYFVQ

The centers of two bowling balls are 2.0 meters apart. The mass of one bowling ball is $5.0\, kg$. The mass of the other is $6.0 \,kg$. How much gravitational force do they exert on each other?

The universal gravitational constant is:

$$ 6.67\times 1{ 0 }^{ -11 }\cfrac { N\cdot { m }^{ 2 } }{ { kg }^{ 2 } } $$

A

$ 5.0\times{ 10 }^{ -9 }\,N $

B

$15.0\, N$

C

$ 5.0\times{ 10 }^{ -10 }\, N $

D

$30.0 \,N$

E

$ 3.4\times { 10 }^{ -9 }\, N $
