(b)The center of mass is a vertical distance of 8.7 cm below the hip and a horizontal distance of 31.7 cm from the hip.8.51.Set Up:Let be to the right and let the originbe at the center of mass of the station wagon.Solve: (a)The center of mass is between the two cars, 24.0 m to the right of the station wagon and 16.0 m behind the lead car.(b)(c)(d)the same as in part (b).8.52.Set Up:Let be to the right, with the origin at the initial position of the left-hand end of the canoe.The center of mass of the canoe is at its center.Solve:There is no net horizontal external force so is constant. Initially,so the center of mass doesn’tmove. Initially,After she walks,gives She walks to a point 1.00 m from the right-hand end of thecanoe, so she is 1.50 m to the right of the center of mass of the canoe and and The canoe moves1.29 m to the left.8.53.Set Up:Use Eq. 8.25.Solve: (a)(b)The absence of atmosphere would not prevent the rocket from operating. The rocket could be steered by ejecting
