ROTATION AROUND A CENTER OF MASS: SPINNING WRENCH<br />
Center of Mass Moves In A Straight Line (stroboscopic).<br />
 The center of mass of the wrench is marked with a white dot. The total external force acting on the wrench is zero. As it spins on a smooth horizontal surface, the center of mass moves in a straight line with constant velocity.
