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

r = <0,16,0> m

m1 = 69kg

m2 = 6e24kg (earth)

I need to compute the gravitational force on the object (m1) as a vector

2. Relevant equations

F = GMm/r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I get 1.08e14, which is incorrect. I have a feeling I am calculating a magnitude instead of a vector, I'm just not sure what I need to do differently.
