### Introduction

• The earth exerts a gravitational force on each of the particles forming a body. These forces can be replace by a single equivalent force equal to the weight of the body and applied at the center of gravity for the body.

• The centroid of an area is analogous to the center of gravity of a body. The concept of the first moment of an area is used to locate the centroid.

• Determination of the area of a surface of revolution and the volume of a body of revolution are accomplished with the Theorems of Pappus-Guldinus.

• Center of gravity of a plate

• Center of gravity of a wire

### Center of Gravity of a 2D Body

• Centroid of an area

• Centroid of a line

### Centroids and First Moments of Areas and Lines

• An area is symmetric with respect to an axis BB’ if for every point P there exists a point P’ such that PP’ is perpendicular to BB’ and is divided into two equal parts by BB’.

• If an area possesses two lines of symmetry, its centroid lies at their intersection.

• An area is symmetric with respect to a center O if for every element dA at (x,y) there exists an area dA’ of equal area at (-x,-y).

### First Moments of Areas and Lines

• The first moment of an area with respect to a line of symmetry is zero.

• If an area possesses a line of symmetry, its centroid lies on that axis

• The centroid of the area coincides with the center of symmetry.

### Centroids of Common Shapes of Lines

• Composite plates

• Composite area

• Calculate the first moments of each area with respect to the axes.

• Find the total area and first moments of the triangle, rectangle, and semicircle. Subtract the area and first moment of the circular cutout.

For the plane area shown, determine the first moments with respect to the x and y axes and the location of the centroid.

• Compute the coordinates of the area centroid by dividing the first moments by the total area.

### Sample Problem 7.1

• Find the total area and first moments of the triangle, rectangle, and semicircle. Subtract the area and first moment of the circular cutout.

### Sample Problem 7.1

• Compute the coordinates of the area centroid by dividing the first moments by the total area.

• Double integration to find the first moment may be avoided by defining dA as a thin rectangle or strip.

### Sample Problem 7.2

• SOLUTION:

• Determine the constant k.

• Evaluate the total area.

• Using either vertical or horizontal strips, perform a single integration to find the first moments.

Determine by direct integration the location of the centroid of a parabolic spandrel.

### Sample Problem 7.2

• Or, using horizontal strips, perform a single integration to find the first moments.

• Evaluate the centroid coordinates.

### Sample Problem 7.2

• Surface of revolution is generated by rotating a plane curve about a fixed axis.

• Area of a surface of revolution is equal to the length of the generating curve times the distance traveled by the centroid through the rotation.

### Theorems of Pappus-Guldinus

• Body of revolution is generated by rotating a plane area about a fixed axis.

• Volume of a body of revolution is equal to the generating area times the distance traveled by the centroid through the rotation.

### Theorems of Pappus-Guldinus

The outside diameter of a pulley is 0.8 m, and the cross section of its rim is as shown. Knowing that the pulley is made of steel and that the density of steel is determine the mass and weight of the rim.

### Sample Problem 7.3

• SOLUTION:

• Apply the theorem of Pappus-Guldinus to evaluate the volumes or revolution for the rectangular rim section and the inner cutout section.

• Multiply by density and acceleration to get the mass and acceleration.

• SOLUTION:

• Apply the theorem of Pappus-Guldinus to evaluate the volumes or revolution for the rectangular rim section and the inner cutout section.

• Multiply by density and acceleration to get the mass and acceleration.

### Sample Problem 7.3

• A distributed load is represented by plotting the load per unit length, w (N/m) . The total load is equal to the area under the load curve (dW = wdx).

• A distributed load can be replace by a concentrated load with a magnitude equal to the area under the load curve and a line of action passing through the area centroid.

### Sample Problem 7.4

• SOLUTION:

• The magnitude of the concentrated load is equal to the total load or the area under the curve.

• The line of action of the concentrated load passes through the centroid of the area under the curve.

• Determine the support reactions by summing moments about the beam ends.

A beam supports a distributed load as shown. Determine the equivalent concentrated load and the reactions at the supports.

• SOLUTION:
