Q1= Four Particles of equal masses M move along a circle of radius R under the action of their mutual gravitational attraction .Find the speed of each particle.

Since the mass of the particles are same and they are moving under the same circumstances therefore the particles will always remain diametrically opposite so that the force on each particle will be directed along the radius, so we can consider the circular motion of one such particle and calculate the speed of it from the centripetal force concept and that will be exactly same for every other particle too.
