# Physics bars?

a)By what distance will the center of mass of this part move horizontally and vertically if the vertical bar is pivoted counterclockwise through 90 ∘ to make the entire part horizontal?

Find the magnitude of horizontal displacement.

b)Find the direction of horizontal displacement.

c)Find the magnitude of vertical displacement.

d)Find the direction of vertical displacement.

Below is the recommendation and reference answer for question "Physics bars?" It was collected and sorted by the editor of this site but not sure the answer is entirely accurate.

One could use any point, but I'll set the origin at the left end of the horizontal bar. "Weight" each mass by its horizontal or vertical distance from the origin and divide by the total mass.

total mass M = (4.00 + 3.00 + 2.00) kg = 9.00 kg

Bent:

x_cm = (4.00*1.50/2 + 3.00*1.50 + 2.00*1.50)kg·m / 9.00kg = 1.17 m

y_cm = (0 - 3.00*1.80/2 - 2.00*1.80)kg·m / 9.00kg = -0.700 m

Straight:

x'_cm = (4.00*1.50/2 + 3.00*(1.50 + 1.80/2) + 2.00*(1.50 + 1.80))kg·m / 9.00kg

x'_cm = 1.87 m

y'_cm = 0 (by observation)

Δx = (1.87 - 1.17) m = 0.700 m → to the right

Δy = 0.700 m → up

Hope this helps!
