We have four squares that make up one big square. Square A is located at the top right corner, square B at the top left corner, square C at the bottom left corner, and square D at the bottom right corner. All these squares have equal masses, and the length of each square is 80 cm. What is the center of mass of the figure if square D is removed and placed on top of square B?
My solution is xcm= ((m1x1)+(m2x2)+(m3x3))/(m1+m2+m3)
m(-40+40+(2*-40))/4m
=-80/4=-20cm
ycm= m(40-40+(2*40))/4m
=80/4=20cm
Is this correct? Thank u
