Given that the distance between the Earth and the Moon is d = 3.84 􀀁 108 m, show
that a satellite located exactly in-between the Earth and the Moon at a distance of
90% d from the Earth experiences no net force (at least when only the
gravitational force due to the Earth and the Moon at taken into account). Draw a
diagram showing the forces acting on the satellite.
