Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int_{0}^{2} 1+\frac12y~dy\] 2 + 2/4 is what i see along the y axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or in this case, maybe a line for the y cg and another for the xcg; where they cross would be the center of mass

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what i was taught is first to calculate the mass and then calculate integrals for moments with respect to the yaxis and xaxis and then divide My/M (my moment by mass ) to get x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i found the mass \int\limits_{2}^{2}\int\limits_{0}^{\sqrt{4x^2}}1+\frac{ y }{ 2 }dydx = \frac{ 8 }{ 3 }+2\pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{2}^{2}\int\limits_{0}^{\sqrt{4x^2}}1+\frac{ y }{2 } dydx =\frac{ 8 }{ 3 }+2\pi\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would the integral for my be the same just with extra y? like Mx\[\int\limits_{2}^{2}\int\limits_{0}^{\sqrt{4x^2}}y(1+\frac{ y }{ 2 })dydx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then i would get 0, ooo it should be zero since circle is centered at 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int\limits_{2}^{2}\int\limits_{0}^{\sqrt{4x^2}}y(1+\frac{ y }{ 2 })dydx\] \[\int\limits_{2}^{2}\int\limits_{0}^{\sqrt{4x^2}}y+\frac12 y^2~dy~dx\] \[\int\limits_{2}^{2}\frac12(\sqrt{4x^2})^2+\frac16 (\sqrt{4x^2})^3~dx\] \[k\int\limits_{2}^{2}~dx\] \[k(2(2))=4k\] right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol .... i totally looked over the x parts in the second go around :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i thought id clean it up by using a constant k, because i overran the xs and simply forgot to integrate them \[\frac12\int\limits_{2}^{2}(\sqrt{4x^2})^2~dx+\frac16\int\limits_{2}^{2} (\sqrt{4x^2})^3~dx\] \[\frac12\int\limits_{2}^{2}4x^2~dx+\frac16\int\limits_{2}^{2} (4x^2)\sqrt{4x^2}~dx\] \[8\frac{8}3+6\pi\]
