**1. Homework Statement**

What is the magnitude of the gravitational force on object #1 as a result of object #2? Distance A = 0.383 m and distance B = 0.271 m.

the diagram for the problem is here:

**2. Homework Equations**

Fg= Gm1m2/r^2

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I tried simply plugging in the masses and using the distance for the radius.

Fg= (6.67E+-11)(10)(10)/(.383)^2

I don't know if object #2 is impacted by the gravitational force of object #3...I don't know how to incorporate that
