Center of Mass continued Divide the region into n strips parallel to the y-axis. Assume the center of mass of each sub-rectangle is at its geometric center. m i δ x i A i ±±±±±±±± x i is the density of the ith rectangle. A i is the area of the ith rectangle. Since we are only going to consider constant density, x i .
