There are 4 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Determining the Centre of Mass in Objects and Systems of Objects. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Determining the Centre of Mass in Objects and Systems of Objects and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Determining the Centre of Mass in Objects and Systems of Objects. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.
In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:
In the previous tutorial, "Centre of Mass. Types of Equilibrium", we discussed in general about centre of mass for a single object and on how to determine it experimentally. The only case in which we can find mathematically the centre of mass making use only of the information provided in the previous tutorial, is when the object is regular and homogenous.
Now, we will explain how to determine mathematically the centre of mass in irregular objects. Furthermore, we will also explain how to calculate the centre of mass in systems composed by more than one object, whether attached or detached.
