PROBLEM 5.101
For the machine element shown, locate the y coordinate of the
center of gravity.
SOLUTION
First assume that the machine element is homogeneous so that its center of gravity will coincide with the
centroid of the corresponding volume.

PROBLEM 5.118
Three brass plates are brazed to a steel pipe to form the flagpole
base shown. Knowing that the pipe has a wall thickness of 8 mm
and that each plate is 6 mm thick, determine the location of the
center of gravity of the base. (Densities: brass = 8470 kg/m3;
steel = 7860 kg/m3.)
SOLUTION
Since brass plates are equally spaced, we note that
the center of gravity lies on the y-axis.

Steel pipe:
m = ρ V = (7860 kg/m3 )(270.22 × 10−6 m3 )
= 2.1239 kg
Each brass plate:
1
(0.096 m)(0.192 m)(0.006 m) = 55.296 × 10−6 m3
2
m = ρ V = (8470 kg/m3 )(55.296 × 10−6 m3 ) = 0.46836 kg
V=
Flagpole base:
Σm = 2.1239 kg + 3(0.46836 kg) = 3.5290 kg
Σ y m = (0.096 m)(2.1239 kg) + 3[(0.064 m)(0.46836 kg)] = 0.29382 kg ⋅ m
Y Σm = Σ y m :
Y (3.5290 kg) = 0.29382 kg ⋅ m
Y = 0.083259 m
Y = 83.3 mm above the base
