DO:4.4 MASS PROPERTIES
• A Numerical integration may be done on the geometry of a part by examining its components. From this mass, Polar and Cartesian moments of inertia, and centre of mass may be determined.
• An approximate division of space is often used called oct-trees. In this case the volume of the object is recursively broken down into finite parts. Other methods use an even division of space.
• Is most successful with solids models.
