The gravitational force F between the bodies of masses M and m is given by:
F = GMm/R^2, where G, the gavitational constant = 6.673 x 10^-11 N times m^2/kg^2, M, the Mass of earth = 5.98x10^24kg and , R the diastance between the cenre of earth and man = 6.37x10^6 m, and m, the mass of man = 61.8 kg. Therefore
F = 607.7597283 N
