										Dear student,
Given two bodies, one with mass $m_{1}\!\,$ and the other with mass $m_{2}\!\,$, they will orbit the barycenter of the two bodies. The equivalent one-body problem, with the position of one body with respect to the other as the unknown, is that of a single body of mass
$m_\text{red} = \mu = \cfrac{1}{\cfrac{1}{m_1}+\cfrac{1}{m_2}} = \cfrac{m_1 m_2}{m_1 + m_2},\!\,$
The relative acceleration between the two bodies is given by
$a= a_1-a_2 = \left({1+{m_1 \over m_2}}\right) a_1 = {{m_2+m_1}\over{m_1 m_2}} m_1 a_1 = {F_{12} \over m_\text{red}}.$
