In this article today I will solve the Equation No 1 that how to find the Centriod of any object.
Example no 1: determine the centriod of the given figure with reference to the given reference axis.
Given figure is symmetrical about y axis passing through the center of bout rectangular figure (1) and (2) so required centriod will at the distance of 70/2 = 35cm from the y-axis along the x-axis I-e x = 35cm
Now y will be determine by moment of area method for which :
Area of figure 1) = a1d =1030 = 300cm2
Area of figure (2) = a2d = 7010 = 700cm2
Distance of G1 along y-axis = y1 = 30/2 = 15cm
Distance of G2 along x-axis = y2 = 30+10/2 = 35cm
Distance of centriod =y =?
We know that
29000/1000 = 29 cm
