Unformatted text preview: x Distance (m) Three Masses in a Plane Figure: Drawn to scale. Calculate the x-coordinate oF the center oF mass. Answer in units oF m. Your answer must be within ± 3%. 004 (part 2 oF 2) 10 points Calculate the y-coordinate oF the center oF mass. Answer in units oF m. Your answer must be within ± 3%. 005 (part 1 oF 2) 10 points Three particles are placed in the xy plane. A m 1 = 30 g particle is located at ( x 1 , y 1 ), where x 1 = 8 . 7 m and y 1 = 2 . 6 m and a m 2 = 19 g particle is located at ( x 2 , y 2 ), where x 2 =-3 . 8 m and y 2 =-1 . 4 m . What must be the x coordinate oF the m 3 = 30 g particle so that the center oF mass oF the three-particle system is at the origin? Answer in units oF m. 006 (part 2 oF 2) 10 points What must be the y coordinate oF the m 3 = 30 g particle so that the center oF mass oF the three-particle system is at the origin?

    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.

    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.
