2 Physics 1D03 Apply Newton’s Laws to objects that are not particles: F or F How will an extended body move (accelerate) when a force is applied at an arbitrary location? The motion of the centre of mass is simple; in addition, various parts of the object move around the centre of mass. e.g., Physics 1D03 M m m m i i i i i CM r r r Σ = Σ Σ = (Recall the position vector r has components x, y, z.) x CM m 1 m 2 m 3 Centre of Mass = i i CM r r m M Definition: or, r CM = dm M CM 1 r r For continuous objects,
3 Physics 1D03 Dynamics of a system of particles CM definition: = i i CM r r m M Differentiate with respect to time: total
