Statement of a problem № 10648


Two particles are located on the x axis. Particle 1 has a mass m and is at the origin. Particle 2 has a mass 2m and is at x = +L. A third particle is placed between particles 1 and 2. Where on the x axis should the third particle be located so that the magnitude of the gravitational force on both particle 1 and particle 2 doubles? Express your answer in terms of L?
