Physics

The force of gravity cannot act at a distance. State true or false.


ANSWER

False


SOLUTION
According to Newton's gravitational law,  the force on mass m due to gravity is $$F=\dfrac{GMm}{r^2}$$
Thus, the force of gravity depends on the distance $$r$$. Hence, the force of gravity can act for a finite distance. Thus, the given statement is false.
