**drwls**, Monday, October 10, 2011 at 7:27pmLet the box bottom be centered at the origin, with sides parallel to the x and y axes.

The center of mass is at x = 0 and y = 0 for reasons of symmetry. For the z coordinate, take the area-weighted mean of the z coordinates of the centers of the four sides and bottom. That would be

z = 4*20/5 = 16 cm

(0,0,16)
