This quiz/worksheet assessment is a great tool you can use to measure your knowledge of center-of-mass and how to calculate its velocity. You must be familiar with the equations used for these calculations and how to apply them.

This assessment will test your ability to do the following:

- Express the velocity of center-of-mass equation in words
- Understand what we end up with when the total force on a system is divided by the total mass of the system
- Know how to solve a net gravitational force problem
- Identify the type of forces needed to determine the acceleration of the center-of-mass
- Define center-of-mass

**Problem solving**- use acquired knowledge to solve net gravitational force problems**Defining key concepts**- ensure that you can accurately define center-of-mass**Information recall**- access the knowledge you've gained regarding total force divided by total mass of a system**Knowledge application**- use your knowledge to state the equation for velocity of center-of-mass in words

If you need more information about this complex topic, you can find more in the lesson titled Calculating the Velocity of the Center of Mass. This lesson contains:

- The definition of velocity
- Examples of different velocity of center-of-mass equations
- Charts that visually represent data given in an equation
