Is there one for 3d objects?

Yes, but I don’t think we’re allowed to tell you what it is.

>_<

I’m not in school FYI. As far as I can remember, any book I’ve ever had for math/physics had all the formulas in it, so that’s not something someone would ask..right?

Please let me know what it is, it’s ok if you want to wait X days (in case you still think this is a homework question)

I wonder what the center of a 10 dimensional object is?

You just integrate the 2d slices in 3d
