This means that potassium hydroxide (like most substances) is a <u>"compound".</u>
In chemistry, a compound is a substance that outcomes from a blend of at least two distinctive chemical elements, so that the atoms of the diverse components are held together by chemical bonds that are hard to break. These bonds shape because of the sharing or trade of electron s among the particles. The littlest unbreakable unit of a compound is known as a particle .
A compound varies from a mixture, in which holding among the particles of the constituent substances does not happen.
To develop this problem we will apply Newton's laws regarding gravitational forces, both in space and on earth. From finding this relationship, leaving the variable of the dust mass open, we will find the relationship of the forces between the two surfaces. Our values are,
Distance between the center of lead sphere to dust particle
Gravitational force of the sphere on the dust particle:
