Dear Baba

Principle of superposition simply states that resultant gravitational force on a point mass will be equal to the sum of gravitation force exerted by individual point masses in the system.


All the best

acording to this principal net gravitational force acting on a particle due to other particles is vector sum of all the forces.........

  F net =F1 +F2 +F3................ Fn   (all forces should be taken in vector form)

   this law is equally valid for all  conservative forces like magnetic forces,electrostatic forces etc......
