This applet displays the motion of the center of mass of a dumbbell-shaped object. The ratio of the two masses on either end of the dumbbell can be varied, as well as the angle and the velocity of the projectile motion. The effect of the changes on the projectile path traced can be viewed.
This is part of a larger collection of physics and math applets by the author.
