Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Trisha on Monday, November 22, 2010 at 7:18pm.

I understand the basics of the center of mass, but I'm having a hard time with this wire one:

"A uniform piece of wire, 20 cm long, is bent in the center to give it an L-shape. How far from the bend is the center of mass?"

If you could help that'd be great. Thank you!
