Three masses are arranged in the (x, y) plane

as shown. What is the magnitude of the resulting

force on the 2 kg mass at the origin? The

value of the universal gravitational constant

is 6.6726 × 10^−11 N · m^2/kg^2 .

Answer in units of N

2kg @ (0,0)

5kg @ (4,2)

6kg @ (1,-3)

Please show step by step.
