Consider an "L" -shaped object where the vertical leg extends from the origin to (0,5) and the horizontal segment extends from the origin to (3,0). Assume that the object has uniform linear density throughout.

Where is the location of the center of mass (CoM)?

A

(0,0)

B

(1.5,1.5)

C

(1.5, 2.5)

D

(2.5,2.5)

E

The center of mass for an "L" is undefined because there is no single point on the object where it can be supported, such that it will not rotate.
