Lecture 14: Applications of Double Integrals Integral of density Suppose that we have a thin plate (lamina) described by a region R . Let ρ ( x , y ) be the density of the plate at a point ( x , y ). We define the mass to be m = Z Z R ρ ( x , y ) dA Lecture 14: Applications of Double Integrals Center of mass Suppose that we have a thin plate (lamina) described by a region R .
