Gravitation Formula

The formula for gravity is F=(GMm)/r^2

If 2 objects touch each other, the force of attraction between them should be infinite and hence, they we should not be able to separate them.

Then how can we separate them?

The \(r\) that is in the denominator is the distance between the centers of gravity between two massive objects and that is never equal to zero, even if the two objects come into contact.

On a related note, technically nothing ever comes into contact with anything. Mursalin Habib · 3 years ago
