I don't care for the mass center. I care only for the mass particles.
I am glad that you agree with me about those. > Could you give your proof that this force is also finite. I could, after this is settled with the majority here. That all balls are forced to the left hand side.

> Well I'm settled on the finite force on every individual ball part.
Fine. Everybody else also? > Your paradox revolved around the fact that the center of mass of a closed system was supposedly moving. It can also revolves around the strange fact you admit. Only left pointed forces at t=0. A matter of choice.

This is absolutely ridiculous. OMP has provided a considerable amount of mathematic proof that this mathematic problem is unsolvable, results a divergency. Yet, Tomaz, you still continue to provide an equation that is set up, but not your process for solving it. OMP, thus far, has constructed the only VALID argument between the two of you. And you are still unable to provide full and complete calculation of the force on the center of mass, which is where the core of this seeminly fake paradox lies.

What is your point?
That it is all OK, if all the net forces, to every ball, are finite and left pointing, as long as the force to the mass center is divergent? Is that your point?

Yes because the force on the center of mass will be equal to the sum of the forces on all particles in the system. Thus the forces add to be infinite. This is a problem.

First of all, the force to the mass center is NOT the sum of all forces. Not at all.
Do you know that?

[tex]M\mathbf{R} = \sum_i m_i \mathbf{r}_i[/tex] [tex]M\dot{\mathbf{R}} = \sum_i m_i \dot{\mathbf{r}_i}[/tex] [tex]M\ddot{\mathbf{R}} = \sum_i m_i \ddot{\mathbf{r}_i}[/tex]

Do you know, that this is not the case?
You and I could be forced to accelerate in the opposite directions, yet the center of the mass of the you&me system, would not move at all. Let alone to be accelerated. Just one example.
