I will assume it is a homogenous density.

In that case fist find the mass.

In this case simply the area.

To express the region we need the intersection points between the line and parabola.

The upper curve is,

and lower is .

Thus,

Thus,

.

Now we find the first moments.

Thus,

Thus,

Thus,

the y coordinate is given by

.

and the x coordinate is given by

is the area of the region between the two graphs and are the points where they intersect. - December 7th 2006, 08:46 PMviet
