The force of gravity between two objects will increase if their distances decrease. The force of gravity or proportional to the objects' masses, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

a) stays constant b) decreases sharply c) increase d) decreases slightly

### What happens to the force if the distance between 2 objects is decreased?

Gravitational force would increase as distance is decreased. Because force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance

### When is the effort force decreased in a first class lever?

The effort-to-load force in a first class lever is decreased when the distance between the effort and the fulcrum is less than the distance between the fulcrum and the load.

### What is grating constant?

Grating constant is the distance between two rulings present on the grating plate.

### Name that line lines that always have the same distance between them?

parallel lines - they are parallel when the distance between them remains constant

### How do you find out if lines are parallel?

If the distance between the lines is constant then they are parallel.

### What are the factor affecting capacitances of capacitance?

The area of the sheets, the distance between them, and the material between them.

### What has a variation in the relationship between two variable quantities with a constant ratio?

The relationship is a linear one. For example when driving at a constant speed, the relationship between distance driven and the time driven is linear with a constant ratio (of the constant speed).

True!

### Does a ramp decrease the amount of force or the distance?

Both are decreased I believe. The higher accent decreases the line distance between twonpoints. And the shorter the distance, the less force is needed to scale it.
