The Problem is the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

One half of a uniform circular disk of radisu 1 meter lies in the xy-plane with its diameter along the y-axis, its center at the origin, and x>0. The mass of the hallf-disk is 3 kg. Find(xcoord of center of mass, y-coord of center of mass)

The equation of the center of mass of the coord is the following:

x coord of center of mass = [tex]\int[/tex]x * density(x)AreaofSlice(x)dx[tex]\div[/tex][tex]\int[/tex]density(x)dx

or

x coord = [tex]\int[/tex]massofslice * x [tex]\div[/tex][tex]\div[/tex] massofslice
