Unformatted text preview: moment of area should be computed about a horizontal axis that passes through the centroid, and then about the xaxis. This shape is simple enough that the answers can be checked by hand (if you wish). In the coordinate system shown, the equation for the top curve is given by y = 6 − cos( x ) and for the bottom curve y = 2 + cos( x ) with units of cm. The shape is bounded by 0 and 4.8 in the xaxis....
