1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 3 identical rectangular blocks on frictionless surface have equal magnitudes of force and in the same direction are exerted on them. The CoM is the same for all the blocks and in the center of the rectangle. For block 1, the force is exerted to the left of the CoM, and halfway to the edge of the rectangle. Block 2, the force is exerted at the CoM and for block 3, the force is exerted on the far right edge of the rectangle. What is the direction of the acceleration of the block's CoM? Rank the magnitudes of CoM accelerations. The attempt at a solution I am thinking that block 1 will move cw, block 2 will go straight, and block 3 will go ccw. Also I think the magnitude of Block 3 is greater than blcok 1 because the distance between CoM and where the force is applied for block 1 is half that of block 3. I can envision the whole movement but I can't think about the direction of the CoM. Anything would help.
