Problem 3.5 Determine the area and the centroid of the area. Solution % y(x) = x^(3/2) % where 0<x<a and 0<y<a a = 1; % m % differential element % dA = y dx = x^(3/2) dx % centroid of the differential element is at % x and y/2 = (1/2) x^(3/2) % A = int(dA) where 0<x<a A = int( x^(3/2),x,0,a); % A = 0.400 (m^2) % My = int(x dA) where 0<x<a My = int(x*x^(3/2),x,0,a); xC = My/A; % xC = 0.714 (m)
