Throwing a Ball in a Boat - Demonstrating Center of Mass

By Flipping Physics, 08/19/2018

When I throw a massive ball to the left such that it lands in the other end of the canoe, what will happen to the positions of the objects? What if the ball does not land in the canoe? This video provides answers and solutions to those questions. Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 topic.
