I need to find the center of mass of a cone with point facing downwards, of height H and radius R.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Since the density is constant throughout and because of axial symmetry the center must be somewhere on the z-axis.

I know from convention that this is H/4 but i need to derive this.

Rcm = (intregral from 0 to H) of the change in radius

this is where im stumped

i did really bad in calculus

could anyone help me?
