I am currently trying to find the center of mass of two rods. One rod is 20 2/3 oz and is 17 inches long with a diameter of 3. The other rod is 10 1/3 oz and 17 inches long with a diameter of 1 1/2 The bigger rod is touching the smaller one if they were both standing up. It looks almost like a bottle. Would I just take the center of mass of each rod and average them together with the bigger rod accounting for more or is that too simple?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
