From a square sheet of uniform density, one of the four portions within its diagonals is removed .. Find the of centre of mass of a remaining portion if the side of the square is a. The portion removed is right one
Lets find out the com of the triangle first.
Let the density be
The center of the squre is taken as the origin
The x coordinate of the CoM is
Now using symmetry
Similarly, the coordinates of the other three triangles are (-a/3,0), (0,a/3),(0,-a/3)
So the CoM of the remaining square is
