# Foolish Fun with COM of an IIT JEE alien.

**Classical Mechanics**Level 4

If he is made out of pieces of a homogeneous wire of uniform line thickness, and let mass of his two eyes (inner circles) is \(m\), and mass of the his nose and his lips is also \(m\) each ( Vertical and horizontal lines ) also mass of boundary of his face is \(6m\).

The coordinates of the **centres** of the different parts are :

- Outer circle ( Face Boundary ) is (0,0)
- Left circle ( left eye ) is (-a,a)
- Left circle ( Right eye ) is (a,a)
- Vertical Line ( Nose ) is (0,0)
- Horizontal Line ( Lips ) is (0,-a)

In this situation the \(y\)-coordinate of the centre of mass of the alien is \({ y }_{ o }\).

Then an friend of this alien give an slap to him due to their Personal matters. So This alien becomes sad and curls his lips about it's centre into a semi-circle of radius \(r\) .

Then find the radius \(r\) such that the new \(y\)-coordinate of the centre of mass of this alien becomes \(-{ y }_{ o }\).

**Details and Assumptions**

- \(a=10\)
- All body parts have uniform same mass density.
