A set of fossilized triceratops footprints discovered in Texas show that the front and rear feet were 3.2 m apart. The rear footprints were observed to be twice as deep as the front footprints. Assuming that the rear feet pressed down on the ground with twice the force exerted by the front feet, find the horizontal distance from the rear feet to the triceratops's center of mass.
