Unformatted text preview: alexander (jra2623) – homework 17 – Turner – (92510) 1 This print-out should have 11 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Three 2 kg masses are located at points in the xy plane as shown. 40 cm 53 cm What is the magnitude of the resultant force (caused by the other two masses) on the mass at the origin? The universal gravita- tional constant is 6 . 6726 × 10 − 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 . Correct answer: 1 . 91978 × 10 − 9 N. Explanation: Let : m = 2 kg , x = 40 cm = 0 . 4 m , y = 53 cm = 0 . 53 m , and G = 6 . 6726 × 10 − 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 . The force from the mass on the right points in the x direction and has magnitude F 1 = G mm x 2 = Gm 2 x 2 = (6 . 6726 × 10 − 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 ) (2 kg) 2 (0 . 4 m) 2 = 1 . 66815 × 10 − 9 N . The other force points in the y direction and has magnitude F 2 = (6 . 6726 × 10 − 11 N · m 2 / kg 2 ) (2 kg) 2 (0 . 53 m) 2 = 9 . 50174 × 10 − 10 N .
