# What is y_c when finding y_R?

## Homework Statement

During the calculation of yR in fluid mechanics problem, hydrostatic force on a plane surface

## Homework Equations

yR = yc+$\frac{I_xc}{y_c×A}$

## The Attempt at a Solution

I can see how it is calculated but I've read through the chapter and I don't see how it is described. The textbook is Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics (6th Ed.) by Munson.
