## Homework Statement

Where is the center of mass of an isoceles triangle?

## Homework Equations

x

_{cm}=∫xdV/V (where V is the volume of the triangle)

## The Attempt at a Solution

The representation of the sides is what I'm confused with. Flipping the triangle to it's side is what's recommended to be able to express it better. Taking a small chunk and labeling it's side, you can express the length of this chunk to be 2y(replacing y with b(the base)). My issue is what should I label the shorter side as? Should I label it as x, another variable, or in terms of y?
