## Homework Statement

The masses and coordinates of three particles are as follows: 20.0 kg, (0.50, 1.00) m; 432.0 kg, (-1.00, -1.00) m; 71.0 kg, (0.00, -0.50) m. What is the gravitational force on a 20.0 kg sphere located at the origin due to the other spheres, magnitude and direction? Give the direction as an angle in degrees counter clockwise with respect to the the + x-axis.

## Homework Equations

Fgrav=(Gm*m)/r

^{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did this equation from the 20 kg sphere to all the other ones, and did that force times cos and sin. but I am not getting the right answer.
