Center of Mass - Matrix Representation
The HP Prime program CENTERMTX calculates the center of mass of the matrix M, where M represents the body. The entries of M represents an array of molecules, each with assigned weights. It is possible that the center of mass is located outside of the body.

Note: If gravity affects the particles equally, then the center of mass & center of gravity are identical.

Formulas:

Xc = ∑(x * m)/∑m
Yc = ∑(y * m)/∑m

HP Prime: CENTERMTX

Code:
EXPORT CENTERMTX(m) BEGIN // Center of Mass: matrix // Matrix of mass LOCAL s,tm,rt,ct,r,c; // in MAKEMAT I=row,J=col s:=SIZE(m); r:=s(1); c:=s(2); // Total Mass tm:=TRN(m*MAKEMAT(1,c,1))* MAKEMAT(1,r,1); tm:=tm(1,1); // Row Total rt:=TRN(m*MAKEMAT(I,c,1))* MAKEMAT(1,r,1); rt:=rt(1,1); // Column Total ct:=TRN(TRN(m)*MAKEMAT(I,r,1))* MAKEMAT(1,c,1); ct:=ct(1,1); // center RETURN [[rt/tm,ct/tm]]; END;

Example: Locate the center of mass of the following body.

M = [[1 , 2, 1], [1, 1, 2],[1, 2, 1]]

The center of mass: [[ 2.08333333333, 2 ]]

Congrats for your program, I´m going to download to my calculator. This is the first step for simebody who wants to program the famous and impressive "Sección" program for HP48 or 50, with gravity center, moments of inertia etc, on any shape, any.

RE: Center of Mass - Matrix Representation
I´ve tried a little example to manage the program, but I didn´t get the results I expected. I want to know the center of gravity of a triangle. The coordinates are (0,0), (5,0) and (5,5). I suppose mass 1 for every points, so I write this matrix:

[[0 0 1][5 0 1][5 5 1]]

The gravity center sould be (10/3 5/3), but I don´t get that result. What am I doing bad? Thank you.

Note that the matrix does not contain the coordinates and associated masses, but rather it's a grid representation of point masses. There is an explanation of the matrix in Eddie's blog.

For your example the matrix may be entered as (6x6 matrix, e.g. 0 to 5 = 6 grid points):

[[1 0 0 0 0 1][0 0 0 0 0 0][0 0 0 0 0 0][0 0 0 0 0 0][0 0 0 0 0 0][0 0 0 0 0 1]]

This will yield the center of mass at grid position (13/3 8/3), having a (+1 +1) offset with respect to your solution (note that the origin (0 0) is at grid position (1 1)).

RE: Center of Mass - Matrix Representation
The following program computes the center of mass for arbitrary arrangements of mass points in 3D cartesian space. For a system consisting of n particles the input is a n-by-4 matrix, e.g. the x, y, z coordinates in the the first three columns and the masses in the forth column.

Code:
EXPORT CG(xyzm) BEGIN   LOCAL s,r,c,t,x,y,z,m;   LOCAL mt,cx,cy,cz;   s:=SIZE(xyzm);   r:=s(1);   c:=s(1);   t:=TRN(xyzm);   x:=t(1);   y:=t(2);   z:=t(3);   m:=t(4);   mt:=ΣLIST(m);   cx:=DOT(x,m)/mt;   cy:=DOT(y,m)/mt;   cz:=DOT(z,m)/mt;   RETURN [[cx,cy,cz]]; END;

Using akmon's example:
Code:
CG([[0 0 0 1][5 0 0 1][5 5 0 1]]) = [3.333333333 1.666666667 0] = [10/3 5/3 0]

RE: Center of Mass - Matrix Representation
Thank you very much for your version, Thomas. That´s what I was searching, easier for matrix input, even I edited it simpler, because 99% I work in 2D only.

There is built-in function in HP Prime for this.  Geocaching Coords Solver, Number of triangles Puzzle
