which can rotate about an axis perpendicular

to the system. The mass of each connecting

rod is negligible. Treat the masses as particles.

The x-axis is along the horizontal direction

with the origin at the left-most mass 5 kg.

The masses are separated by rods of length

5 m, so that the entire length is 2 (5 m).

Determine the x-coordinate of the center of

mass for the three-mass system with respect

to the origin.

Answer in units of m.
