Two particles which are initially at rest, move towards each other under the action of their internal attraction. If their speeds are v and 2v at any instant, then the speed of centre of mass of the system will be

• 2v

• 0

• 1.5 v

• v

B.

0

As initially, both the particles were at rest, therefore, velocity of the centre of mass was zero and there is no external force on the system so the speed of the centre of mass remains constant i.e, it should be equal to zero.
