Q: Two bodies of masses M1 and M2 are placed at a distance R apart. Then at the position where the gravitational field due to them is zero, the gravitational potential is

(a) $\displaystyle -G\frac{\sqrt M_1}{R}$

(b) $\displaystyle -G\frac{\sqrt M_2}{R}$

(c) $\displaystyle -G (\sqrt M_1 + \sqrt M_2)^2 \frac{G}{R}$

(d) $\displaystyle -G (\sqrt M_1 – \sqrt M_2)^2 \frac{G}{R}$

Ans: (c)
