# The center of mass of a full can of soda is approximately at the center. (a) Part of the soda is consumed and the can is re- placed on the table. What happens to the center of mass of the can + soda system? (b) Eventually all of the soda is consumed and the can is replaced on the table. What happens to the center of mass of the can? See Problem 5.

(a) When part of the soda is consumed, the center of mass of soda-can system shifts away from the center of the can, towards the base of the can, on which it rest on the table. This can be seen from the fact that the contribution of mass from the soda consumed no longer exists, and therefore the center of mass must move towards the soda present in the can.
(b) When all of the soda is consumed, the center of mass can again be located at the center of the can. If one assumes that soda can is symmetrical in shape, then the center of mass of an empty soda will align itself to the geometrical center of can.
