Force Due To Gravity

  1. Mar 26, 2009 #1
    Given that the distance between the Earth and the Moon is d = 3.84 x 10^8 m, show
    that a satellite located exactly in-between the Earth and the Moon at a distance of
    90% d from the Earth experiences no net force (at least when only the
    gravitational force due to the Earth and the Moon at taken into account). Draw a
    diagram showing the forces acting on the satellite.
