Three point objects are located at various locations on a Cartesian coordinate system. Mass 1, with a mass of 1.1 kg, is located at (1.0,1.5) m. Mass 2, with a mass of 3.4 kg, is located at (3.0,1.0) m. Mass 3, with a mass of 1.3 kg, is located at (1....5,2.5) m. Where is the center of mass of the three-object system? Want Lecture Notes?

Center of mass is defined and demonstrated in projectile motion. We demonstrate what happens when you push at or near the center of mass. The center of mass of a Feeble is demonstrated. And the “Hang Test” is used to find the center of mass of a flat..., irregular object. Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 topic.
