Question: consider two point masses with the following initial conditions at...

Question details

Consider two point masses with the following initial conditions (at time t= 0):

Body 1: Mass m1= 1, initial position (−1,0,0), initial velocity (0,0,10),

Body 2: Mass m2= 1, initial position (1,0,0), initial velocity (0,10,0).

Will these two masses move (due to their mutual gravitational attraction) on a plane?

Justify your answer.
