These two masses orbit their common center of mass, very far from any other masses. If the conservation principle holds for this system, select the proper reason. Otherwise, select Not Conserved. The sum of external forces acting on the system is zero. 1. The work done by all the non-conservative forces on all the objects in the system is zero. 2. The only force acting on the smaller mass points toward the center of mass of the system. 3. The only force acting on the larger mass points toward the center of mass of the system. 4. Not Conserved. 5. TP1 Class 23 Page 4
