1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Imagine we have three masses, m1, m2 and m3. m2 is greater than m1. m3 is smaller than both. If we hold m1 and m2 in place without movement, and place m3 in the midpoint of the line adjoining m1 and m2, what will happen to m3? 2. Relevant equations Newton's law of gravitation 3. The attempt at a solution Since m2 > m1, I would think that the net force would be towards m2. However, this doesn't seem to make sense because the net force would just get greater and greater and eventually collide with m2. But this doesn't seem to be right. What would happen?
