A mass of 710 kg is located at the origin. A second mass, 44.0 kg, is located at the point (0.216,0.702) m. Find the magnitude of the gravitational force on the 44.0 kg mass due to the 710 kg mass at the origin.
I got:
3.86×106 N
Enter the x and y components of the gravitational force on the 44.0 kg mass due to the 710 kg mass:
i don't understand the second part of this problem...can you help me please ??
