(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2 masses, 5k and 10kg are fixed in place at the coordinates 1,0 and 1,1 respectively. what combined gravitational field strength do they produce at the point 0,0?

2. Relevant equations

g = GM/r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

total g = G(5)/(1)^2 +G(5)/2

not the right answer though -- answer is 6.16 X 10^-10 @ 22.5 degrees

plz help!!
