Simple graphics are used to lay out cardboard templates whose ordinates, areas, and their centroidal distances represent significant parameters of constants sought; template areas are evaluated and their centroids located experimentally; this is equivalent to numerical integration and division of one integrated function by another; thus, experimental part of method serves as mechanical analog; method is simple, rapid, and accurate.
