12.49: a) The simplest way to approach this problem is to find the force between the spacecraft and the center of mass of the earth-moon system, which is m 10 67 . 4 6 × from the center of the earth. The distance from the spacecraft to the center of mass of the earth-moon system is 3.82 m. 10 8 × Using the Law of Gravitation, the force on the spacecraft is 3.4 N, an angle of ° 61 . 0 from the earth-spacecraft line.
