6. The centers of mass (with centimeters understood) for each of the five sides are as follows: 111 222 333 444 ( , , ) (0,20,20) for the side in the plane ( , , ) (20,0,20) for the side in the plane ( , , ) (20,20,0) for the side in the plane ( , , ) (40,20,20) for the remaining side paral xyz y z x z x y = = = = 555 lel to side 1 ( , , ) (20,40,20) for the remaining side parallel to side 2 = Recognizing that all sides have the same mass m , we plug these into Eq. 9-5 to obtain the results (the first two being expected based on the symmetry of the problem).
