Center of gravity

  1. Sep 26, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Center of gravity for a shape T both arm are 60mm long and 6mm wide.

    2. Relevant equations

    dont know the equation but seeing as there is not wieght involved am guessing the formula isnt that hard. a discription of the formula and how to use it would help alot

    3. The attempt at a solution

    if both arms are 60mm and 6mm wide shouldent the center og gravity be where the to arms connect?

    Been checking the net and found that for a uniform shape i should just do H/2

    so (60+6)/2 = 33m so the (cg) is 33m from the bottom of the T shape?
