# Interactive video lesson plan for: Center of Mass in a 1 and 2 Dimensional System

#### Activity overview:

In this lesson I define and discuss the difference between Mass and Force, Moment about the origin in a 1 dimensional system, Moment about the x axis and y axis in a 2 dimensional system, and explain how to find the center of mass in a 1 and 2 dimensional system.
EXAMPLE 1 at 18:58 Finding equilibrium in a 1 dimensional system
EXAMPLE 2 at 22:45 Finding the center of mass and a 2 dimensional system with 3 point masses.
At minute 25 I say that 9+4+5 is 16, which of course is actually 18:( There are annotation corrections, or you can watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lO_Zpst8VU
