Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Sam on Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 4:00pm.

When a spacecraft travels from the Earth to the Moon, both the Earth and the Moon exert a gravitational force on the spacecraft. Eventually, the spacecraft reaches a point where the Moon's gravitational attraction overcomes the Earth's gravity. How far from the Earth's surface must the spacecraft be for the gravitational forces from the Moon and the Earth to just cancel?
