A uniform wire is bent as shown. Which of the points shown in the diagram best shows the location of the center of mass of the wire? The dotted line shown connects the midpoints of the straight pieces of the wire. Po in tE 0% Po in 0% tD 0% tC tB 0% Po in tA 0% Po in Point A Point B Point C Point D Point E Po in A. B. C. D. E. Two discs of radii 8.0 cm and 4.0 cm are made of cardboard and are placed on a flat table as shown.
