Centrobaric method (Math.), a process invented for the
purpose of measuring the area or the volume generated by
the rotation of a line or surface about a fixed axis,
depending upon the principle that every figure formed by
the revolution of a line or surface about such an axis has
for measure the product of the line or surface by the
length of the path of its center of gravity; -- sometimes
called theorem of Pappus, also, incorrectly, Guldinus's
properties. See Barycentric calculus, under Calculus.
