A numerical from Centre of mass

Share with:

Pearl asks:

Two objects, of mass 1 kg and 2 kg, are moving with velocities equal to +2 m/sec and -3 m/sec. The center of mass of the two objects is moving at velocity



=(1×2+2x(-3)/(1+2)=(2-6)/3=-4/3=-1.33 m/s (-ve sign shows that the centre of mass will be moving in the direction of the second body)
