1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the point between Mercury and the sun at which an object can be placed so that the net gravitational force exerted by Mercury and the sun on this object is 0. 2. Relevant equations Mass of sun = 1.991 x 10^30kg Mass of Mercury = 3.18 x 10^23kg distance between mercury and sun = 5.79 x 10^10m GMm/R^2 3. The attempt at a solution I've tried setting the force between the object and the sun = force between the object and mercury but got stuck in figuring out what R is on either side.
