The figure below shows three isolated planets, A, B and C on a grid where the
spacing is a. The mass of the planets is M, M and 2M respectively. There is a small
spaceship of mass m located at points P. Assume that the planets are fixed in position and
the spaceship is initially at rest. Assume that the only force acting on the spaceship is the
gravitational force due to the three planets.
