Center of mass of a baseball bat

This demo is a representation of how the center of mass of an object is not necessarily the point at which mass is equal on both sides. A baseball bat has been cut in two along its center of mass along the long side and joined together with a metal post stuck in between the two parts.  A professor can balance the bat along the center of mass (two fingers works well) and then pull the baseball bat apart and put both parts on a scale. The scale will tilt toward the broader end of the bat, showing that the mass of the two objects is not the same.Standard Pan Balance.Center of mass of a baseball bat.STATICS AND MECHANICAL EQUILIBRIUM.A+60+45
