Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Monday, December 17, 2007 at 9:02am.

Two 2.160 kg crystal balls are 0.870 m apart in the vertical direction. Calculate the magnitude of the gravitational force they exert on a 8.80 g marble located 0.260 m horizontally out from the center of a line that intersects the centers of the balls. (For your own knowledge, determine the direction of the force.)

I feel like I'm close to understanding this, but I still don't quite get it. Do I have to calculate the mag. of grav. force the crystal balls exert on each other first?
