Center Mass

Calculate position of center mass

A coordinate system for determining center of mass:

Center mass - position

The position of center mass can calculated as

Rx = (ma xa + mb xb) / (ma + mb)

     = (mb / (ma + mb)) d                                (1)


Rx = x-coordinate for the center of mass
