Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Mel on Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 8:58pm.

A uniform rod of length 176 cm is bent at its midpoint into a right angle. Then the bent rod is placed along the negative x and positive y axes, with the "bend point" located at the origin. What are the x and y coordinates of the center of mass of this object?

my thoughts were that the coordinates were just (.44, .44) but it's incorrect. can someone help?
