Center of Mass of a Perforated Square Plate
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration interactively computes and plots the centroid (center of mass) of a square plate perforated with a circular or regular polygonal hole.[more]
When the hole is a regular polygon and rotated around its center, the centroid of the plate moves and the locus of the center of mass is displayed.[less]
