Acceleration of Center of Mass – equation, definition

We already know that the center of mass of a body is a point inside the body where its entire mass is situated. A moving body can have two other center of mass – Velocity of center of mass and acceleration of center of mass. In another article, we have discussed the velocity center of … Read more

Formula for Center of Mass by integration in Physics

All bodies consist of a large number of point masses. The mass of an entire body is the sum of the masses of those points. Now, there must be a central point in a body. If the body is symmetric and with uniform density, then the central point is the center of mass of the … Read more

Velocity of center of mass – equation, calculation

We know that the center of mass of a body is a point inside it where the entire mass of the body is situated. For a uniform and symmetric body, its center of mass is exactly its middle point. Now, when the body moves, its center of mass also moves. So, the center of mass … Read more
