Added by David Fairhurst on Feb 6, 2008

An interactive animation illustrating how to find the centre of mass of a T-shaped wooden block. Click on the black dots in the shape to change the hole from which it is hung. A plumb line always passes through the pink dot, illustrating the position of the centre of mass.

This resource is from the unit Centre of Mass which is part of Absorb Physics.
