Somewhere Near the Center (Posted on 2008-09-09) Difficulty: 2 of 5
This problem was inspired by Charlie's "Continental Pole of Inaccessibility" problem.

An irregular two dimensional shape is depicted below. Using the unit markings find the following:

1. The "center of mass" for the shape.
2. The point on the shape that lies furthest from the edge.
