    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.
