## Homework Statement

a) What is the magnitude of the net gravitational force on the m2=10kg mass? Assume m1=20kg and m3=15kg.

b) What is the direction of the net gravitational force on the m2=10kg mass? Assume m1=20kg and m3=15kg.

## Homework Equations

F = G*m2*m3/R^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

M2 x vector force

sin(26.565)*G*m2*m3/(0.223)^2

M2 y vector force

cos(26.565)*G*m2*m3/(0.223)^2

Total force

x vector

sin(26.565)*G*m2*m3/(0.223)^2 = 9.03796*10^-8

y vector

G*m2*m1/0.2^2 + cos(26.565)*G*m2*m3/(0.223)^2

= 5.0058*10^-7

magnitude

sqrt((9.03796*10^-8)^2+(5.0058*10^-7)^2) =

5.0867

angle
