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 i =1 m i is the total mass of the sys- tem. The sum of the individual moments M = n i =1 m i x i is called the moment of the system about the origin . Note that m ¯ x = M.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
