The Moon (mass 7.35 × 1022 kg) orbits the Earth (mass 5.98 × 1024 kg) at a distance of 3.85 × 108 meters. Meanwhile, the Earth orbits the Sun (mass 1.99 × 1030 kg) at a distance of 1.50 × 1011 meters. When the Moon is directly between the Earth and the Sun, what is the gravitational field at the location of the Moon due to the Earth and the Sun combined? (G = 6.67 × 10−11 N m2/kg2)

5.93 × 10−3 N/kg toward the Sun.

5.93 × 10−3 N/kg toward the Earth.

3.21 × 10−3 N/kg toward the Sun.

3.21 × 10−3 N/kg toward the Earth.

2.69 × 10−3 N/kg toward the Earth.
