There are 4 small objects located in the x-y plane. One object of
mass m is at (d,0). Another object of mass (n1m) is located
at (-d,0). A third object of mass (n2m) is located at
(0,d/2) as shown in the figure below. What is the magnitude of the
graviational force on the object of mass M placed at the origin?
If the magnitude of the force on the object at the origin is
F = n3 GMm/d2, what is n3? Note that all
the integers are unitless.
