(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1.Find the magnitude and direction of the net gravitational force on Mass A due to masses B and C in Figure 6.27. Each mass is 2.00 kg.

The figure looks like this:

A<----------->(10 cm distance)C<-------------------------->(40 cm distance)B

2.F(g)=G * (m(1)m(2))/(r^2)

3.I'm thinking of two ways to do this, one would be just include all 3 masses and the final distance between A & B, which would be 6.674e^-11 * (2 *2 *2)/(.50 m^2), which is 2.14e-9 to the right.

However, I could just do the two separately between A & C, and A & B, and just add them, or I could do A & C, and C & B, and just add them. Not too sure here, thanks for any help!
