 Jan 5 awarded Popular Question Nov 17 awarded Popular Question Oct 22 comment What is the proof that a force applied on a rigid body will cause it to rotate around its center of mass? @AsadSaeeduddin I guess my answer is incomplete. If we agree that the COM is in linear motion and the body is rigid, each point on the body will have to be at constant distance from the COM at all times. This is only possible if each point is in linear motion too with the same velocity as the COM(i.e. stationery w.r.t. COM) or in circular motion about the COM (w.r.t COM). The COM being in linear motion has nothing to do with it being the center of rotation. It is the other way around.

You could do the same with a basketball in a single bounce off the rim, but as I said, it will require a high enough rotational speed
