As you can see, the specified region is actually in the first quadrant. To find where the curves collide, it is enough to solve the equation:

x^2=sqrt(x) which gives x=0 and x=1.

Then we have:

M= ...

#### Solution Summary

The mass and centroid of a plane lamina are determined through the use of double integrals.

The solution is detailed and well presented.
