Physics: Three Identical Masses

posted by .

Three identical masses of 640 each are placed on the x axis. One mass is at = -100 , one is at the origin, and one is at = 400 .

What is the magnitude of the net gravitational force on the mass at the origin due to the other two masses?
Take the gravitational constant to be = 6.67×10−11 .
