Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Avalon on Monday, November 22, 2010 at 9:12pm.

A uniform piece of wire, 30 cm long, is bent in the center to give it an L-shape. How far from the bend is the center of mass?


I know that the center of mass is
([m1]x+[m2]x)/([m1]+m2]), but I don't quite understand how to apply it to this problem.
