physics

A water molecule consists of an oxygen atom with two hydrogen atoms bound to it. The bonds are .100nm in length and the angle between the two bonds is 106 degrees. Use the x-y axis shown and determine the location of the center of gracity of molecule. Consider the mass of an oxygen atom to be 16 times the mass of a hydrogren atom.

You need to describe the x-y graph and how the molecule is placed.
