A uniform square plate L = 5.9 m on a side as a square section d = 2.5 m cut out of one side. What is the center of mass of the remaining plate? Use a coordinate system with origin (0, 0) at the center of the plate. The answer must be given in components. X = ? Y = ?. From the picture it is obvious the Y component is 0, so Y = 0 is correct. (and the auto-grade says correct also, so Y = 0 ). However, exactly how to find the X component I can't figure out. I tried 2-3 different ways of doing it, and none have worked, does anyone know exactly how to solve this problem for the X component? I tried a few things like splitting it up and using weighted averages but it is not working or I have the wrong equation. Thanks! I am attaching a picture of the problem.
