Calculating the Center of Mass of a System of Particles (6:41)
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? This is an AP Physics 1 topic.
