Caution: Ignore the weight of the bucket

itself.

The bottom and the top of a bucket have

radii rb = 15 cm and rt = 26 cm respectively.

The bucket is h = 36 cm high and filled with

water.

Where is the center of gravity relative to

the center of the bottom of the bucket?

Answer in units of cm.

2. Relevant equations

Xcm = (X1M1)/(M1)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm enrolled in a Calculus Physics so I know that I should be using Calculus and not regular physics formula.

Do I have to integrate the problem, but the only problem is that no equation is given. That's where I am stuck at.

I don't want you to tell me how to do it, but can you give me a hint as where I should start off.
