Question
| The drawing shows a human figure in a sitting position.
For purposes of this problem, there are three parts to the figure,
and the center of mass of each one is shown in the drawing. These parts
are: (1) the torso, neck, and head (total mass = 41 kg) with a center of
mass located on the y axis at a point 0.39 m above the origin, (2) the
upper legs (mass = 17 kg) with a center of mass located on the x axis at
a point 0.17 m to the right of the origin, and (3) the lower legs and feet
(total mass = 9.9 kg) with a center of mass located 0.43 m to the right of
and 0.26 m below the origin. Find the x and y coordinates of the center
of mass of the human figure. Note that the mass of the arms and hands
(approximately 12% of the whole-body mass) has been ignored to sim-
*64.
