### What would be the effect on the gravitational force if you increase mass and increase the distance between the masses?

If you increase the mass, you increase the gravitational force proportionally. If you increase the distance between two masses, you decrease the gravitational force between them by and amount proportional to the square of the distance.

### What happens to the gravitational force between two objects if the mass of one object is uadrupled increased 4 times. the gravitational force would be?

It would also increase fourfold ... as long as the distance between them didn't change.

### If the mass of one of the objects diubles what is the new force they excert on each other?

If you refer to gravitational force, it would also double.If you refer to gravitational force, it would also double.If you refer to gravitational force, it would also double.If you refer to gravitational force, it would also double.

### 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

### How could one decrease the gravitational force between a planet and an object orbiting the planet?

Gravitational force depends only on the masses involved, and on the distance. Thus, to DECREASE the gravitational force, you would have to reduce the mass of the planet or the object (take some stuff away from it); or increase the distance.

### Which planet would have the greatest gravitational force?

The planet that has the greatest gravitational force is Jupiter.

### When the mass of one of two objects increases what happens to the force of gravity between two objects?

The gravitational force would increase. This is because the gravitational force between two bodies is directly proportional to the product of the two masses. So if you double the mass of one of the masses, the force would double.

### Jupiter has about 300 times the mass of Earth and about ten times Earth's radius. What's the Estimated size of g on the surface of Jupiter?

Since gravitational forces between two masses are proportional to m1 &amp; m2, a 300x increase in planetary mass would INCREASE the gravitational force on an object by the same factor: 300x compared to earth. Since gravitational forces are also proportional to 1/(radius squared), a 10x increase in planetary radius would DECREASE the gravitational force by a factor of 100x (10 squared), at the planet's surface. So an object on such a planet would experience gravitational forces 3x greater than those on earth.

### How would the moon move if earths mass increased?

If Earth's mass increased, then the gravitational force between Earth and the moon would also increase. The moon would be more strongly attracted to Earth. The acceleration between the 2 would increase also.

### Is the greater an objects mass the stronger the gravitational force on it?

Yes, force is the gravitational acceleration multiplied by the mass of that object. Should the gravitational acceleration increase (as on a different planet) or should the object's mass increase, the gravitational force on the object will as well.

### What Suppose the moon were closer to the Earth. How would the Force of gravity between Earth and the Moon be different?

If it happened in a moment, I think the moon's orbit would become much more eccentric (elliptical) than it is now. the moon's compostition is made of rocky material such as rocka and a lot of dust

### The force with which gavity attracts a body?

That would be the Gravitational Force.
