A coordinate system (in meters) is constructed on the surface of a pool table, and

three objects are placed on the coordinate system as follows: a 1.5 kg object at the origin,

a 3.4 kg object at (0 m,1.8 m), and a 4.5 kg

object at (4.2 m,0 m).

THANK YOU!!

Find the resultant gravitational force exerted on the object at the origin by the other

two objects. The universal gravitational constant is 6.672 × 10

−11

the gravitational constant G =6.67•10^-11 N•m²/kg²,

F1= G•1.5•3.4/1.8²

F1= G•1.5•4.5/4.2²

F=sqrt(F1²+F2²)

α=arctan(F2/F1)

The angle with respect to the positive x axis is

180°+ α
