 Oct3 comment Finding the center of gravity/mass of half of an empty cylindrical shell Forgive me, but you lost me when you began calculating h2. Here is where my mind is: Why is it necessary to calculate a moment? What does dividing "the moment about the x-axis by the circumference of the rounded part of the semicircle" do? Maybe you can tell from these questions where/why I'm not understanding the big picture. Thanks! Jun26 comment Comparing and contrasting equations and functions I don't see how your answer for d is explained by your answer for b. Wouldn't having a polynomial equal a constant be an equation, which would mean that only some values would satisfy/solve the equation? I asked the question the way I did to try to get clarification on the wording of the text I quoted from the linked post. Specifically where he says that a line parallel with the z axis would not intersect the surface exactly once for f(x,y,z)=const., but it would for z=f(x,y).
