Lesson: Center of Mass Physics • 9th Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to find an object’s center of mass and to analyze the effect of the position of the center of mass on an object’s stability.
The object shown in the diagram has a uniform density. Which of the points , , , and is closest to the center of mass of the object?
Which of the following statements most correctly defines the center of mass of an object?
The skewed object shown in the diagram can be supported by one of the objects A, B, C, and D. Which of these objects would most stably support the skewed object? A, B, C, and D all have the same masses as each other and all produce the same amount of friction at their points of contact as each other. All the objects have uniform densities.
