Answer:

Yes it get weaker because it depends upon the inverse of the square of the distance (or separation).

Explanation:

The gravitational force between two objects of mass #m_1# and #m_2# separated by a distance #r# is given as:

#F_("grav")=G(m_1*m_2)/r^2#

Where #G# is the Universal Gravitational Constant#=6.67xx10^-11 (Nm^2)/(kg^2)#
