Determine the position of the center of mass of a thin parabolical shell defined by z = a^2 - r^2 in cylindrical polar coordinates, glued to a flat bottom where z = 0, r < a of the same thickness.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 21, 2019, 10:06 am ad1c9bdddf
First, we know that the center of mass lies on the z axis. All that remains ...
The center of mass of a thin parabolic shell is figured. The cylindrical polar coordinates are used to determine the position of the center of mass of a thin parabolic shell.
