## Main Question or Discussion Point

I know that n-body problem can be complicated, but that's for the dynamics. What about a static case:

e.g. if I have the distances of several bodies

e.g. if I have the distances of several bodies

**A**,**B**and**C**etc. and their distance to a reference mass**m**, can I just use the vector addition of the Newton's gravitational force to add up all of the forces from all those bodies to the reference mass and obtain the resulting vector? or is it more complicated than that?
