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).
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
N · m2
Answer in units of N
At what angle does it act with respect to
the positive x axis? Let counterclockwise be
positive, within the limits of −180
Answer in units of
the gravitational constant G =6.67•10^-11 N•m²/kg²,
The angle with respect to the positive x axis is
