The masses and coordinates of three spheres are as follows: 16 kg, x = 0.75 m, y = 3.00 m; 34 kg, x = -2.50 m, y = -2.75 m; 60 kg, x = 0.00 m, y= -0.75 m. What is the magnitude of the gravitational force on a 30 kg sphere located at the origin due to the other spheres?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2. Relevant equations

i know to use this equation:F=(GMm)/r^2

i know you have to do a^2+b^2=c^2 to find the radius of each sphere but i just dont know what to do after that...
