(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Three identical spherical particles of mass m are each located at the corners of an equilateral triangle with edge length r (each sphere is centered at each corner). Show the magnitude of the net gravitational force on any one of the particles due to the other two particles is given by:

2. Relevant equations

Fg = sqrt(3) Gm^2/r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Again... had no idea where to start.
