Is the larger prism hollow? Are all the walls of the same thickness? If the walls are of uniform thickness, or if it is solid, the larger prism's center of mass is located at the center of symmetry, regardless of whether a smaller prism exists or not. It would be located 250 from each 46x46 end and 23 from each of the 46x500 walls
