Sample problem 2 h H M m x y Soda cane with mass M and height H has a soda with mass m and at a level of h . Find center of mass of the cane with soda. Solution: X-coordinate of COM is zero due to symmetry. To find Y-coordinate of COM we consider cane and soda as two different independent point like masses with known coordinates. Then What happens if h = 0 , or h = H ?
