Find the location of the CM of a hollow ice cream cone, with base radius R and height h, and uniform mass denisty. How does your answer change if the cone is solid, instead of hollow?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Okay, so I'm pretty sure that I need to work with slices, and that you need the mass which I believe is [where sigma is density]

σ ( (pi) r^2 + (pi) r √r2 + h2)

Though I don't know where to go from here
