Finding the Center of Mass Using Technology
In Exercises 25–28, use a computer algebra system to find the mass and center of mass of the lamina bounded by the graphs of the equations for the given density.
To Calculate: The mass and center of mass of the lamina bounded by the graphs of the given equations.
First, sketch the graph as shown below,
Draw the reference axis in xy coordinates.
Then. plot the provided equations:
Further, mark the points on the plot and connect them.
Shade the region inside the graph as the area of interest is the area inscribed by the equations.
The final plot is shown below as:
Therefore, the mass of the lamina is:
Now, to find the center of the mass calculate the moment of inertia about both the axes.
The moment of inertia about x-axis is:
The moment of inertia about y-axis is:
