1. Find the mass of a rod length 10 cm with density d(x) = e^-x gm/cm at a distance of x cm from the left.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2. Find the center of mass of a system containing three point masses of 5gm, 3gm, and 1 gm located respectively at x = -10, x = 1, and x =2.

for number two what I did is just this:

(5(-10) + 3(1) + 1(2)) / (-10+1+(-2)) and I got 45/7
