what is L ?

problema 3?

4. nickymarden

yeep. :)

5. JamesWolf

Uhmmm, idk sorry.

6. nickymarden

thanks :)

Are you using integration formulas to do this? Because that's the only way I know to do it.

8. nickymarden

The problem is I only learn integration in Calculus B and I'm in Calculus A. Well, if that's the only way..thanks :))

Actually, there's another way, without integration stuff.

hoow? :))

11. TuringTest

@imron07 I'm sure there is, but I don't remember it :(

First, divide the plate into three rectangles. Find the coordinates of center of mass of each. Say, you find, A, B, and C. The coordinate of total center of mass is the center of mass of this three as if it were three particles.

that sure makes sense, I really should have been able to think of that.

omg yees, why didnt i do this? thank you so much @imron07

15. imron07

Okay, no problem :)
