According to the universal law of gravitation, the force of gravitation between two objects is given by = / 2

(i) F is directly proportional to the masses of the objects. If the mass of one object is doubled, then the gravitational force will also get doubled.

(ii) F is inversely proportional to the square of the distances between the objects. If the distance is doubled, then the gravitational force becomes one-fourth of its original value. Similarly, if the distance is tripled, then the gravitational force becomes one-ninth of its original value.

(iii) F is directly proportional to the product of masses of the objects. If the masses of both the objects are doubled, then the gravitational force becomes four times the original value.
