Dear Sai,


First we can consider the square slab is placed such that its centre of mass is at C(0,0)


Now we can consider this centre of mass to be contributed by the square slab ABCH and the remaining part HCBGIFDE


and let the position of centre of mass of this part is (x1, y1) and the removed square part will be (1,1)


From these we can find the position of th Centre of mass of the part remaining after removing the square ABCH


xcm = ( m 1 x 1+ m 2 x 2 )/m 1 + m 2


ycm = ( m 1 y 1 + m 2 y2 )/ m 1+ m 2


Where m1 = mass of HCBGIFDE = (Area of it) * thicknesss * density of the slab = A1 * t * d


where A1 = 3* area of each square = 12


And similarly m2 = 4 * t * d


And ( x2, y2 ) = ( 1, 1 )


and (xcm ,ycm) = ( 0,0 )


thus we would get  ( x1, y1 ) = ( -1/3, -1/3 )


Now if the removed plate is kept on the Plate HCDE


then its centre of mass becomes ( x2, y2 ) = ( -1, 1 )


Now we again calculate the centre of mass of the system bye using the formula


xcm = ( m 1 x 1+ m 2 x 2 )/m 1 + m 2


ycm = ( m 1 y 1 + m 2 y2 )/ m 1 + m 2


we get the centre of mass of the system to be ( -1/2, 0 )
