Nickzom Calculator Calculates the Centroid or Centre of Gravity of a Semicircle | Statics (Mechanics)

The image above is a semicircle with a radius of 7 cm.
To compute the centroid or centre of gravity of a semicircle, you need one essential parameter and this parameter is the radius of the semicircle.

The formula for calculating the centroid or centre of gravity of a semicircle is:

C.G.= 4r /

Where:
r = Radius of the Semicircle
π = Mathematical Constant = 3.142 (approximately)

Let’s solve an example:
Find the centroid or centre of gravity of a semicircle where the radius is 7 cm.

From the example above,
r = radius of the semicircle = 7

C.G. = 4(7) /
C.G. = 28 / 9.4247
C.G. = 2.97

Therefore, the centroid or centre of gravity of the semicircle is 2.97.

Nickzom Calculator – The Calculator Encyclopedia is capable of calculating the centre of gravity of a semicircle at a distance from its base measured along the vertical radius.

To get the answer and workings of the center of gravity or centroid of a semicircle using the Nickzom Calculator – The Calculator Encyclopedia. First, you need to obtain the app.
