According to the Newton's gravitational law, two bodies exert an attractive gravitational force on each other. This force is equal to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. This force depends on two factors that are product of masses and distance between the bodies. The formula for gravitational force is;

F= Gm1m2/ r2

G= gravitational constant

m1= mass of first body

m2= mass of second body

r= distance between two bodies

The value of gravitational constant is 6.673 × 10−11 N m2 kg-2.
