. The value of quantity G in the law of gravitation


A: depends on mass of earth only

B: depends on radius of earth only

C: depends on both mass and radius of earth

D: is independent of mass and radius of the earth

 

Best Answer

Explanation:

The value of G is a constant like other constants and is independent of factors such as medium, temperature pressure etc. 

The  value of gravitational constant of the earth is independent on  the mass and radius of the earth.

Thus,

The value of quantity 'G' in the law of gravitation is independent of mass and radius of the earth.

Final Answer:

Hence, Option D is correct. ( is independent of mass and radius of the earth )
