Relative dating planets
The distance is in the denominator because the force gets smaller when the distance gets bigger.Note that the force never becomes zero no matter how far you travel.Love-hungry teenagers and archaeologists agree: dating is hard.But while the difficulties of single life may be intractable, the challenge of determining the age of prehistoric artifacts and fossils is greatly aided by measuring certain radioactive isotopes.The "r" below is the distance from the center of the planet.The masses are in the numerator because the force gets bigger if they get bigger.Once you've got it moving, it wants to stay moving. If you grabbed the anvil and tried to shake it, you would have to push it to get it going and pull it to get it to stop.
The amount of attraction depends on the size of the masses and how far apart they are. Scales measure the force of attraction between you and the Earth. If the planet you are standing on is twice as massive, gravity also pulls on you twice as hard.In the lowland areas of West Pokot, there are numerous seasonal rivers that have abundant water flowing during the rainy season.However due to the very sandy nature of these rivers, the rain water is most often lost quickly as flash floods.Carbon-14 is also passed onto the animals that eat those plants.After death the amount of carbon-14 in the organic specimen decreases very regularly as the molecules decay.
