Introductory Exercise 8.1

Ques 1: What is the difference between centre of mass and centre of gravity?
Ans: 
Centre of Mass, Conservation of Linear Momentum (Part - 1) - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev

If a body is placed in a uniformly increasing gravitational field Centre of Mass, Conservation of Linear Momentum (Part - 1) - Physics, Solution by DC Pandey NEET Notes | EduRev in the upward direction the CG of the body will be higher level than the CM. And, if the body is placed in a uniformly decreasing gravitational field in the upward direction the CG will be at a lower level the CM.

CG shifts from CM according to the magnitude and direction of the gravitational field (by some other agency eg, earth) in which the body is placed.
In zero gravitational field CG has no meaning while CM still exists, as usual.

Ques 2: The centre of mass of a rigid body always lies inside the body. Is this statement true or false ?
Ans: 
False
Sol: 
The centre of mass of a rigid body may lie in side, on the surface and even out side the body. The CM of a solid uniform sphere is at its centre. The CM of a solid ring is at the centre of the ring which lies outside the mass of the body thus, the statement is false. (For further details see answer to 1 As sertion and Reason JEE corner)

Ques 3: The centre of mass always lies on the axis of symmetry if it exists. Is this statement true or false?
Ans: 
True
Sol: Centre of mass always lies on the axis of symmetry of the body, if it exists. The statement is thus true.

Ques 4: If all the particles of a system lie in y-z plane, the x-coordinate of the centre of mass will be zero. Is this statement true or false?
Ans:
True
Sol: Statement is true.

Ques 5: What can be said about the centre of mass of a solid hemisphere of radius r without making any calculation. Will its distance from the centre be more than r/2 or less than r/2?
Ans: 
less than r/2
Sol: As more mass is towards base.
Distance  < r/4.

Ques 6: All the particles of a body are situated at a distance R from the origin. The distance of the centre of mass of the body from the origin is also R. Is this statement true or false?
Ans: 
False
Sol: If two equal masses are kept at co-ordinates (R, 0) and ( - R, 0), then their centre of mass will lie at origin.

Ques 7: Three particles of mass 1 kg, 2 kg and 3 kg are placed at the corners A, B and C respectively of an equilateral triangle ABC of edge 1 m. Find the distance of their centre of mass from A.
