Centroid of a right triangle


Figure 1

The centroid coordinates are two thirds away from
the vertex and 1/3 away from the right angle.

Consider the right triangle shown in Figure 1. Along the hypotenuse, y = a x.
The area of the triangle is
The x coordinate of the centroid, X, multiplied by the area is equal to the integral of x multiplied by the area da. That is, it is the sum of the small areas da multiplied by their x coordinate.
where,
Therefore,
Solving for the x coordinate of the centroid,
