Which Of The Following Points Is The Likely Position Of Hollow The Centre Of Mass Of The System Shown In Figure

Which of the following points is the likely position of Hollow the centre of mass of the system shown in figure? sphere (a) A (b) B (c)…


(c) The position of centre of mass of the system in this problem is closer to heavier mass or masses or we can say that it depends upon distribution of mass. So it is likely to be at C. In the above diagram, lower part of the sphere containing sand is more heavier than upper part containing air. Hence CM of the system lies below the horizontal diameter.
