Problem 46P

(I) Find the center of mass of the three-mass system shown in Fig. 7-37 relative to the 1.00-

kg mass.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 46P:

We have to find the location of the center of mass of the three particle arranged in a straight line.

Step 1 of 3</p>

Concept:

Center of mass(CM) of a body is an imaginary point at which whole mass of the body is supposed to be concentrated.We consider that the net force acts on the centre of mass of body, insteads of considering that it acts on each and every point on the body for simpler calculation and this is one of the importance of application of CM.

Step 2 of 3</p>

Figure below depicts the position of the particle. We choose the origin at the left 1 kg mass.
