We have already considered applications of double integrals, in fact we actually

started with an application: nding the mass of a plate of variable density. We have

also found volumes of solids.

We consider here further applications. These are based on formulas which we

rst obtain from localized cases, say for a particle. We then extend them to two

dimensional regions, by summing and taking limits (i.e., integrating) just like we

did before.

We recall the following: Suppose we have a particle of mass m positioned at

(x

0

, y

0

). Then

x

0

y

0

x

0

y

0

y

x

( )

,

m

M

x

= 1st moment with respect to the x-axis = my

0

,

M

y

= 1st moment with respect to the y-axis = mx

0

,

I

x

= 2nd moment (moment of inertia) with respect to the x-axis = my

2

0

,

I

y

= 2nd moment (moment of inertia) with respect to the y-axis = mx

2

0

,

I

0

= 2nd moment (moment of inertia) about the origin (polar moment) = m(x

2

0

+ y

2

0

).

Now let us suppose we are given a at plate D with density (= mass/area)= f(x, y).

We wish to calculate its moments, center of mass, radius of gyration, etc.

123

dA

D

We decompose the region D into subregions of area dA as shown. We then

nd the mass of the subregion is

f(x, y) dA

and thusas beforethe total mass M of D is

M =

__

D

f(x, y) dA.

In the same way, for the subregion,

M

x

= mass lever arm = yf(x, y) dA

and thus the total M

x

for D is obtained by summing over the subregions and taking

the limit, i.e., integrating. We nd

M

x

=

__

D

yf(x, y) dA.

In the same way,

M

y

=

__

D

xf(x, y) dA

I

x

=

__

D

y

2

f(x, y) dA

I

y

=

__

D

x

2

f(x, y) dA.

124

Then the center of mass of D is (x, y), with x = M

y

/M, y = M

x

/M and the radius

of gyration is (x, y), with (x)

2

= I

y

/M, (y)

2

= I

x

/M.

Important Remarks: (1) The integrals should be evaluated in the simplest way

(depending on the boundary of D and/or the form of f(x, y)). I.e., either as dx dy

or as dy dx or in polar coordinates.

(2) If a plate D has constant density, then (x, y) are also the coordinates of the

centroid. Note that in this case f cancels out from the calculations of (x, y). If D is

symmetric, at least one of the coordinates of the centroid can often be guessed at.

Remember that if f is variable, the symmetry of D may not have any connections

with the position of the center of mass! Check that (x, y) calculated is physically

reasonable by noticing its position relative to D. The same check applies for the

centroid coordinates!

(3) Similar principles apply to other physical problems. Suppose, for example,

that the plate D is charged, and f(x, y) (= charge/area) now represents the charge

density. The total charge in a subregion dA is f(x, y) dA and then the total charge

Q on D is given by

Q =

__

D

f(x, y) dA.

We now pass to examples.

Example 1. Calculate the coordinates of the center of mass of the disc D bounded

by the circle x

2

+ y

2

= 2y, if the density is f(x, y) = 1 + y.

125

Answer. The circle is x

2

+ (y 1)

2

= 1, of center (0, 1) and radius 1. The mass

then is

M =

__

D

(1 + y) dA =

_

2

y=0

_

+

1(y1)

2

x=

1(y1)

2

(1 + y) dx dy

=

_

2

0

(1 + y) 2

_

1 (y 1)

2

dy.

D

y

x

We could continue, but since the boundary is a circle and we would need trigono-

metric substitutions in the integrals, we switch to polar coordinates.

= / 2

r = 2 sin

D

We then have

r

2

= 2r sin or r = 2 sin

126

and thus

M =

D

(1 + y) dA =

_

_

r=0

(1 + r sin )r dr d.

This is much easier, and we get

To conclude, we see where this point is in the circle.

y

x

Since the density does not depend on x and increases with y, the location of x, y

seems reasonable. So it may be wrong, but its not silly.

Example 2. Find the coordinates of the center of mass of a lamina (i.e., at plate)

in the shape of the triangle with vertices (0, 0), (0, 1), (1, 0), if the density at any

point is directly proportional to the square of the distance from the point to the

origin.

Answer. Let a point (x, y) be given. Then the density (x, y) is given by

(x, y) = k[(x 0)

2

+ (y 0)

2

] = k(x

2

+ y

2

)

where k = constant of proportionality.

Again, x, y appear reasonable: the problem is completely symmetric in x and y,

and we got x = y. Furthermore, (
