8.110: By symmetry, 0 = cm x . Using plane polar coordinates leads to an easier integration, and using the Theorem of Pappus ( 29 ( 29 3 3 4 2 cm π π 2 2 a y a = π is easiest of all, but the method of Problem 8.109 involves Cartesian coordinates. For the x -coordinate, dx x a t dm 2 2 - = ρ , which is an even function of x, so = . 0 dx x For the y -coordinate, dy
