    Center of mass problem

    A windsurfing board with uniform thickness and constant density is to be constructed in such a way that the sides are in the shapes of the parabolas y=√(x)/2. For stability, the mast is to be located at the centroid of the surface of the board. How far from the nose of the board should the mast be located?
