Explain what you mean by "center mass". Do you mean the location of the center OF mass? The center of mass of an arrow is forward of center. That makes it aerodynamically more stable. If you add mass to an arrow its velocity, for a given amount of bowstring pull, will decrease...

Use the formula for center of mass. (∑ distance * mass) / total mass = center of mass The masses are what each man is holding, the distance is where each man is from some origin. If you set the origin on one of the men, his distance * mass is 0. Since we know the center ...

to find the center of mass, you add up all of the x-points * all of their corresponding masses. (e.g. sum x*m) and you divide it by the sum of all of the masses (e.g. sum m) therefore (sum x*m)/(sum m). you are looking for where to place x to make the center of mass at the ...

A high jumper wants to clear the bar at 2.1m. To do so he needs to raise his center of mass to a height of 2.4m. Assuming that air resistance can be neglected and his center of mass is 1.1m above the ground at take-off, determine the required vertical take-off speed.
