There are two bodies of mass 100kg and 10000kg separated by a distance 1m.At what distance from the smaller body is,the intensity of gravitational field will be zero.

Asked by mritunjaydebnath448 3rd November 2018, 11:23 AM

As shown in figure, let a point O be at a distance x m from 100 kg and the intensity of gravitational field at this point
due to the given two masses is zero.

We are interested in intensity of gravitational field at the point O, due to the two given masses 100 kg and 10000 kg.
Hence we need to find the gravitational forces F1 and F2 , which are acting between unit mass placed at O and
each of the two given masses as shwon in figure.

Since we assume intensity at O is zero, then we have F1 = F2...............(1)

hence we have,
By simplifying eqn.(1), we get
