Today,, we'll break into groups tosolve center of mass problemsfrom Chapter 9:

Required: 59, 61, 62, 64, 65 Enrichment: 66, 67

These problems will require you to use the calculus and what you learned about different kinds of densities. You may want to look at the following videos for reference:

If you have not yet done so, watch the following videos on finding the center of mass of an object. The first video shows you the theory on finding the center of mass. The second video shows you how to find the center of mass of an object using the summation. The third and fourth videos show you how to use the integral to find the center of mass.
