Finding coordinates of the centroid

  1. Nov 19, 2006 #1
    Sketch the region bounded by the curves and visually estimate the location of the centroid. Then find the exact coordinates of the centroid.

    y=1/x, y=0, x=1, x=2

    I am thinking it is the center of mass.

    As robphy said, start with a definition.
