UPSEE/UPTU Examination: Centre of Mass

The chapter Centre of Mass is a very important part of Mechanics in the syllabus of UPSEE Examination 2018. The centre of mass is a point where the complete mass of any object is supposed to be concentrated. Usually the definition of centre of mass does not come in UPSEE entrance Examination. Therefore, students should focus on numerical questions related to chapter centre of mass. The numerical questions are not so difficult but students will have to do a lot of practice to master this topic. These chapter notes include important topics like the centre of mass of two points system, centre of mass of n points system, impulse, thrust etc. These notes are prepared by Subject Expert and can be used for quick revision.

Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Examination (UPSEE) is a state level engineering entrance examination for degree level engineering institutions and other professional colleges. It is regulated by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) formerly known as Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UPTU).
