ab: Summary: We present an alternative and pedagogical method to calculate the
centre of mass of homogeneous triangular plates by using scaling,
symmetry and geometric infinite series. This work also aims to better
understand problems that involve concepts of centre of mass of discrete
and continuous systems.
