I am trying to locate the centroid of the area (or centre of mass) of a segment of an arch ring. I have calculated the centroid shown by approximately breaking the curve into equivalent triangles and squares and applying the parallel axis theorem, however am sure the results have significant error. I Know the radius and can calculate the formula of the curve if this helps.

Any help would be much appreciated...

p.s. only interested in finding the horizontal distance (i.e. x-axis)
