Dear Avijit

The volume of a hemisphere is 2pR3/3.
     The density of the hemisphere 
r =

Mass/volume = M/(2pR3/3) = 3M/2pR3.

In Fig above, the volume of an element dV = px2 dy.
The mass of the element dm =

rdV = (3M/2pR3)px2 dy.

Notice that x2 = R2 - y2 and that dm = (3M/2pR3)p(R2 - y2) dy.

now for center of mass intigrate

C.O.M = ∫ydm/M    limit  0 to R

put the value of dm and perform intigration you will get

C.O.M = 3R/8
