### If a spacecraft travels from earth to the edge of the solar system what will happen to the gravitational pull between earth and the spacecraft?

The gravitational pull between earth and the spacecraft will become insignificant.

### What would happen to the force between two objects being pulled together by a gravitational attraction?

Nothing, the force in question IS gravitational attraction.

### What happen to the force of gravity when you get further from the earth?

As you get further away from Earth, the gravitational forces between you and Earth decrease. But the gravitational forces between you and something else might increase, like between you and the moon, or between you and the sun.

### What will happen to the gravitational force of attractive between 2 masses if the distance between them is doubled?

it would reduce by two squared, which is 4

### What will happen to the gravitational force when the distance between the centers of the two bodies is halved?

The force will increase fourfold.

### Can the magnitude of a vector be less than magnitudes both of components?

The magnitude of the sum of any two vectors can be anywhere between zero and the sum of their two magnitudes, depending on their magnitudes and the angle between them. When you say "components", you're simply describing a sum of two vectors that happen to be perpendicular to each other. In that case, the magnitude of their sum is Square root of [ (magnitude of one component)2 + (magnitude of the other component)2 ] It looks to me like that can't be less than the the magnitude of the greater component.

### What would happen if the gravitational force was eliminated between the earth and sun?

The earth's constant orbit around the sun is caused by an equilibrium between two forces - the gravitational pull of the sun, and the earth's velocity acting at a right angle to it. If that gravitational pull was suddenly eliminated, the earth would continue onwards in a straight line.
