Unformatted text preview: moment of area should be computed about a horizontal axis that passes through the centroid, and then about the x-axis. 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 x-axis....
