Consider a system of n particles with masses m 1 , m 2 , · · · , m n located at points x 1 , x 2 , · · · , x n on the x -axis. The center of mass of the sys- tem is located at ¯ x = n i =1 m i x i n i =1 m i = n i =1 m i x i m , where m = n X i =1 m i is the total mass of the sys- tem. The sum of the individual moments M = n X i =1 m i x i is called the moment of the system about the origin . Note that m ¯ x = M.
