The 4 black bars have constant linear density. In terms of L, find the coordinate of the center of mass

The 4 black bars have constant linear density. In terms of L, find the coordinate of the center of mass

## Homework Equations

M0 X = summation of (MiXi)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I understand most of the solution, except the answer key says one thing I don't get

M/sqrt(2) at (L/4, L/4)

and at (L/4, 3L/4).

Why is there less mass in the middle of bar though the bar is uniform?
