The distance between the centres of carbon and oxygen atoms in the carbon monoxide gas molecule is 1.130*(1/10000000000)m.Locate the centre of mass of the molecule relative to carbon atom.

if the coordinate of C is (0,0) and that of O is (0,1.13)

x-coordinate of CM =( 0*12 + 1.13*16) /(12+16) = 0.645

therefore the CM is at a distance of 0.645 armstrong from carbon molecule.
