Going from centre of mass to ground frame

  1. Apr 5, 2015 #1
    I know how to go from ground frame to centre of mass frame
    by subtracting velocity of centre of mass from the bodies.But I am not sure about how to go from centre of mass to ground frame.I think we should add velocity of centre o f mass.Right?
