Lesson Plan: Center of Gravity of Particles Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the position of the center of gravity of a set of particles arranged in a two-dimensional plane.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • find the center of gravity of a set of particles on a line or in a two-dimensional plane,
  • find the position of a particle given the center of gravity of the system,
  • solve related problems involving finding the positions and masses of particles in a system.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • moments and related calculations.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • center of gravity of laminas, nonlight rods, or solids.
