In this project, students create a two-dimensional shape with nonuniform density, finds its center of mass, and hang it from a mobile. The various portion of the project address the differences and relationships between computing the center of mass of a discrete set of point masses and a lamina.
Included here is also a sample solution to help students formulate their own well-written solutions. Also, in the LaTeX code are a few comments to address some of the basics of LaTeX and Overleaf.
