Here's the question: "Two equal masses m are separated by a distance a. Find the center of gravity of the two masses relative to a point P on the perpendicular bisector of the line joining them a distance y from the midpoint between them."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(perpendicular bisector definition)

I never heard of a definition of a center of gravity for a system of free particles. Not in my book nor on the net. Any clue?

Thx.
