2 Problem 1 A slender uniform rod of length L and mass M rests along the y-axis on a frictionless, horizontal table. A particle of equal mass M is moving along the x-axis at a speed V 0 . At t = 0 the particle strikes the end of the rod and sticks to it. Find the position ! R cm ( t ) and velocity ! V cm ( t ) of the center of mass of the system as a function of time. Problem 2: Center of Mass of a Rod A thin non-uniform rod has length L and total mass M and the linear mass density varies with the distance x from the left end according to ! = 0 and the position of the center of mass with respect to the left end of the rod.
