An apparatus like the one Cavendish used to find G has large lead balls that are 6.5 kg in mass and small ones that are 0.075 kg. The center of a large ball is separated by 0.052 m from the center of a small ball. The Cavendish apparatus for measuring G. As the small spheres of mass m are attracted to the large spheres of mass M, the rod between the two small spheres rotates through a small angle. Find the magnitude of the gravitational force between the masses if the value of the universal gravitational constant is 6.67259 × 10−11 N m2 /kg2 . Answer in units of N.
