Problem 40

Consider some particles in the plane with position vectors rj, ?2,..., rn and masses m j, m2.......mn.The position vector of the center of mass of this system is1 = T7^wlrl + m2'*2 + -----\~mnrn), Mwhere M = m\ + m2 H-----+ mn. Consider the triangular plate shown in the accompanying sketch. How must a total mass of 1 kg be distributed among the three vertices of the plate so that r 2l the plate can be supported at the point ^ ; that is,r cm ? Assume that the mass of the plate itselfis negligible.

Kaite Kirk COMS/HNRS 101 Informative Speech When deciding what topic to inform the class about, I examined all of my hobbies and passions, then narrowed it down even further by ﬁguring out which topics from my list would be interesting to the class.
