Short-range correlated (SRC) nucleon pairs are a vital part of the nucleus, accounting for almost all nucleons with momentum greater than the Fermi momentum (k F ). A fundamental characteristic of SRC pairs is having large relative momenta, and smaller center-of-mass momenta as compared to k F . Knowledge of the c.m. momentum is essential for understanding the formation mechanism of SRC pairs. I will report on the extraction of SRC c.m. motion from measurements of the A(e,e’pp) reaction at Jefferson Lab.
