# Find the dimensions of G in the equation $F=\dfrac{Gm_{1}m_{2}}{r^{2}}$ ; where F is the force of gravitational attraction between two bodies of point masses $m_{1}$ and $m_{2}$ , 'r' is the distance of separation between them.

##### SOLUTION
The gravitational force acting between the two bodies is given by:
$F=G\dfrac{m_1m_2}{r^2}$

$G=\dfrac { F{ r }^{ 2 } }{ { m }_{ 1 }{ m }_{ 2 } }$

The dimension of the force is $[MLT^{-2}]$

$=\dfrac { \left[ ML{ T }^{ -2 } \right] \left[ { L }^{ 2 } \right] }{ \left[ M \right] \left[ M \right] } ={ M }^{ -1 }{ L }^{ 3 }{ T }^{ -2 }$
