# A solid sphere of uniform density has a mass of 4.0×104 kg and a radius of 2.5 m. What is the gravitational force due to the sphere on a particle of mass 1.0 kg located at a distance of 3.00 m from the center of the sphere?

We can compute the gravitational attraction as if the solid sphere were a point mass with all of the mass concentrated at its center by applying Newton's Shell Theorem.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
