Examining how everything attracts each other in our universe, this quiz and corresponding worksheet will help you gauge your knowledge of Newton's law of gravitation. Topics you'll need to know to pass the quiz include understanding the relationship between gravity and distance as well as knowing what happens when the distance is increased by a factor of three to the force between two objects.

Use this printable worksheet and quiz to review:

- Relationship between gravity and distance
- When the distance is increased by a factor of three
- What Newton's law of gravitation states
- Gravitational attraction problems

This worksheet and quiz will let you practice the following skills:

**Interpreting information**- verify you can read information regarding the relationship between gravity and distance and interpret it correctly**Knowledge application**- use your knowledge to answer a question about what Newton's law of gravitation states**Problem solving**- use acquired knowledge to solve gravitational attraction problems

To learn more about why everything and not just opposites attract, review the corresponding lesson on Newton's Law of Gravitation. This lesson will help you:

- Understand what Newton's law of gravitation is
- Explain the force that keeps planets in orbit
- Describe the characteristics of an inverse square law
- Identify how to calculate the force between two objects
- Appreciate the gravitational constant within the equation
