two point masses are located in the same plane. the distance from mass 1 to the center of mass is 3.0m. The distance from mass 2 to the center of mass is 1.0m. What is m1/m2, the ratio of mass 1 to mass 2?
The product of mass and the distance to the center of mass must be the same for both masses.
m1*3 = m2*1
m1/m2 = __?
