The x axis coordinate and the y axis coordinate of the centre

the-x-axis-coordinate-and-the-y-axis-coordinate-of-the-centre

The x axis coordinate and the y axis coordinate of the centre of gravity are having different types of calculations to calculate them.

A. True

B. False

The question was posed to me during an online interview.

The origin of the question is Centre of Gravity topic in chapter Centre of Gravity and Centroid of Engineering Mechanics

The correct option is B. False

Explanation: The calculation is general to all the axis of the coordinate system. This means that the calculations are generalised for all the axis. And it is the product of the centroid of the section to its mass to the total weight of the body is the centre of gravity.
