## Homework Statement

Find the centroid bounded by the given curves.

y = x^3 , x+y = 2, y = 0

So if you graph this you will see that if you did it with respect to x you would have the break the graph at the point (1,1). Or at least I think you would have to. So in my book they give the equations

## Homework Equations

x bar = (1/A)∫ x(f(x) - g(x)) dx and y bar = (1/A)∫ (1/2) ( f(x)^2 - g(x)^2 ) dx

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I was thinking what if I just turned did it with respect to Y.

So would it be OK if I did.

y bar = (1/A)∫ y(f(y) - g(y)) dy and x bar = (1/A)∫ (1/2) ( f(x)^2 - g(x)^2 ) dx

Would this be OK to try? I just want to make sure I have it straight before I plug and chug.

Thanks,

J
