Nine small particles, each with mass m, are evenly arranged around a ring of radius R. (a) Calculate the net gravitational force on one of the particles due to the other eight particles in the ring. (b) Find the rotational period of the ring necessary to prevent the ring from collapsing under the mutual gravitational attraction of the particles.
