# Gravitational force in outer space on a mass

Please see the attachment.

Four objects are far away in outer space. The only forces each object experiences are the gravitational forces due to the other three. Their positions relative to each are are such that they form a square with side 280.0km. The mass of each is 1.07 x 10.6 kg. Find the magnitude and direction of the force on m1.

This problem is worth a total of 6.00 points

Your answer(s) should be correct to 1.50 %

magnitude x 10 newtons

angle degrees (measured from the positive x - axis )

use values between zero and 180 degrees or between zero and -180 degrees
