    The gravitational force between two given masses is calculated by: \[\Large g = G\frac{{{m_1}{m_2}}}{{{r^2}}}\] Where G is the gravitational constant, m1 and m2 the two masses, and r the distance between their centres. This shows that as either mass increases, the gravitational force increases; or as the distance increases, the gravitational force decreases exponentially. Thus, as already given, more mass and less distance = greater gravitational force.
