Answer :

As we know that position of centre of mass is

Since the centre of mass of regular n-polygon lies in the geometrical centre.

And n-1 equal point masses each of mass m are placed at n-1 vertices of n polygon. Therefore, it’s centre of mass will be

where b = distance of n-1 masses from centre of mass

Negative sign indicates that is in direction opposite to
