Homework Help: Homework Problem

  1. Aug 1, 2006 #1
    Wondering if someone could help me get this answer. I don't get spherical coordinates at all.

    The volume of the region given in spherical coordinates by the inequalities
    3 less than or equal to rho less than or equal to 5
    0 less than or equal to phi less than or equal to pi/6
    -pi/6 less than or equal to theta less than or equal to pi/6
    is filled with uniform material. Find the x-coordinate of the centre of mass.

    Thanks for any help.

    John
