Problem 55E

A machine part consists of a thin, uniform 4.00-kg bar that is 1.50 m long, hinged perpendicular to a similar vertical bar of mass 3.00 kg and length 1.80 m. The longer bar has a small but dense 2.00-kg ball at one end (?Fig. E8.55?). By what distance will the center of mass of this part move horizontally and vertically if the vertical bar is pivoted counterclockwise through 90° to make the entire part horizontal?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 55E Introduction We have to initial position of center of mass and final position of center of mass. Using this values we can calculate the shift of center of mass in horizontal and vertical direction. Step 1 Let us consider the origin of the coordinate system is at the the hinge. Now the position of the center of mass of the individual bar will be at the center of the bar and the position of the center of mass of the ball will be at the center of the ball. Hence the horizontal and vertical position of the center of mass of each individual objects and the mass of the object are given below. For horizontal bar we have , and For vertical bar we have , and And for the ball we have , and Hence the initial horizontal position of the center of mass is And the initial vertical position of the center of mass will be
