Step 1

Divide the given member into three different rectangular section: Step 2

Calculate the individual area and the distance of the CG from the x and y-axis of the rectangular sections.

Rectangle 1:

A1 = 12 x 2 = 24 in2

x1 = 12/2 = 6 in.

y1 = 2/2 = 1 in.

Rectangle 2:

A2 = 2 x 6 = 12 in2

x2 = 2/2 = 1 in.

y2 = 2 + 6/2 = 5 in.

Rectangle 3:

A3 = 2 x 6 = 12 in2

x3 = 2 + 8 + 2/2 = 11 in.

y3 = 2 + 6/2 = 5 in.

Step 3

Calculating the centroid position from the left and from the bottom position: ...
