Mechanics Homework 708 - Centroid and area of spandrel by integration Name_______________

Compute the area of the spandrel in Fig. P-708 bounded by the $$x$$ -axis, the line $$x = b$$, and the curve $$y = kx^n$$ where $$n ≥ 0$$. What is the location of its centroid from the line $$x = b$$? Determine also the $$y$$ coordinate of the centroid.
