Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is a constant so it's value will be same 6.67 x 10^11 m^3 kg^1 s^2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0force between to masses is directly proportional to the product of the masses and inversly proportional to the square of separation. earth being very Huge can not move so stone moves towards earth

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1evry object in the universe attract each other , according to newtons law of gravitation this force is given by \[\huge F=\frac{GMm}{R^2}\] sousing this eqn lets consider force btweethe stone and earth , both of them gets pulled by equal forces according to newtons third law.but u see according to newtons second law \[\huge F=ma\] in the case of earth the mass is large so its acceleration is very small negligible whereas in case of stone mass is less so it has less acceleration.. The net result is the stone falls towards the earth .
