##### Solution :-

Given data:

Mass of the sun ms = 2 × 1030 kg

Mass of the earth me = 6 × 1024 kg

Gravitation constant G = 6.67 x 10-11 N m2 / kg2

Average distance r = 1.5 × 1011 m

Consider Universal law of Gravitation

$$F = \frac{(Gm_1m_2)}{d^2}$$

$$F = \frac{(6.67 \times 10^{-11} \times 6 \times 10^{24}\times 2 \times 10^{30})}{(1.5 \times 10^{11})^2}$$

$$F = 3.56 \times 10^{23}N$$
