Three Methods of Finding Center of Mass.
Reidl, Charles J., Jr.
Physics Teacher, v33 n2 p126-27 Feb 1995
Presents a procedure that students can use to determine the center of mass of a thin (two-dimensional), homogenous object experimentally, analytically, and numerically. Requires students to use three distinctly different approaches to a single problem and necessitates a combination of laboratory skills, a knowledge of fundamental calculus, and introductory computer programming skills.
