Newton's Law and Extra Dimensions
We derive corrections on Newton's inverse square law due to the existence of extra decompactified dimensions. In the four-dimensional macroscopic limit we find that the corrections are of Yukawa type. Inside the compactified space of n-extra dimensions the sub-leading term is proportional to the (n+1)- power of the distance over the compactification radius ratio. Some physical implications of these modifications are briefly discussed.
