PROBLEM 9.64 Determine the xcoordinate of the centroid of the volume shown; this volume was obtained by intersecting an elliptic cylinder with an oblique plane. (Hint:The height yof the volume is proportional to the xcoordinate; consider an analogy between this height and the water pressure on a submerged surface.)
