Gravitational Force computing for components

  1. Aug 31, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    there are four particles
    A(0,0)
    B(10,10)
    C(0,15)
    D(0,5)

    with masses of
    MassA=5kg
    MassB=10kg
    MassC=20kg
    MassD=25kg

    Questions:
    a)total force acting on A.
    b)total force acting on C.

    2. Relevant equations

    F=Gm1m2/r^2

    3. The attempt at a solution
