Center of Mass

This sketch computes the center of mass of an area between two curves. I would recommend a lesson or exploration of the formulas separate from using the sketch, though it could be before or afterwards. Before, if your students are ready to derive them - especially the more confusing M_y calculation; after if they need some experience with center of mass before considering it more abstractly.
