    ok so look. according to the figure at the top. Fca=GM^2/(4r^2) Fcb=Gm^2/(2r^2) Fcd=Gm^2/(2r^2) but Fcd and Fcb are not not providing centripetal force. Fcdcos45 and Fcdcos45 are. so what you gonna do is 1/2mv^2=Fca + Fcdcos45 + Fcdcos45 solve. you have v.

    and btw. the arrows of the forces on C should be opposite. C is getting attracted towards other masses, not other masses are getting attracted towards C.

    masses can only move in a circle due to centripetal force. as fcd and fcb are not directed towards centre, so they cannot provide it. i assume here you know the concept of centripetal force

    just take the RESULTANT MAN The resultant of Two F's is \[Fr = \sqrt{2}F\] this will be in the same direction as that of the third force.. hence the net force is \[Fnet = F/2 + \sqrt{2}F\] finally substitue for F \[F = GM/2R^{2}\]

    well you got confused. i didnt confuse you. :P solve the two, you'll get the same things. fcb=fcd=f so fcbcos45 + fcdcos45= sqrt2f resultant gices sqrt2f too. so they are the same things. forget what i did, follow what mashy said.

    and it doesnt matter because resultant is towards the centre. so that is providing the centripetal force. ignore this if it confuses you.
