# Centroid of a Trapezoid Calculator

A Trapezium or a trapezoid is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides (Bases). Centroid of a geometric object is defined by its centre of mass having uniform density. The centroid lies between the parallel bases. The below online Centroid of a Trapezoid Calculator calculates the center of mass of trapezoid. Enter the values of distance between parallel sides, larger and smaller side in the Center Of Gravity Of Trapezium Calculator to get the required output.

#### Formula:

c = ( h / 3 ) × (((2 × a ) + b ) / ( a + b ) )
**Where,**
c = Center of Gravity or Centroid or Center of Mass
a = Smaller Side
b = Larger Side
h = Distance Between Parallel Sides

#### Example

Find the centroid of a trapezoid having smaller side as 25cm, larger side as 30cm and the distance between parallel sides as 7cm ?

= (7 / 3) x (((2 x 25) + 30) / (25 + 30)

= 3.3939

The **center of gravity of trapezium** is 3.3939 cm.
