This web page is an interactive physics problem on center of mass. The student is asked to find the center of mass for a given set of variables, and can check their answer with the attached Java simulation. The user can then use the Java simulation to see how changing any of the masses changes the center of mass.
This is part of a collection of similar simulation-based student activities.
