Let v1,.,Vk be points in R3 and suppose that for j = 1,., k an object with mass mj is located at point vj. Physicists call such
objects point masses. The total mass of the system of point masses is
m = ml +. + mk
The center of gravity (or center of mass) of the system is
V = - (m,v + .+m, V ]
Compute the center of gravity of the system consisting of the following point masses (see the figure):
Point
Mass
V1 =(5,-4,3) 2g
V2 =(4,3,-2) 5 g
V3 =(-4,-3,-1)2 g
V4 =(-9,8,6) 1g
