## Syntax

`[Xc,Yc]=polycentroid(X,Y);`

## Description

This function computes the centroid of a polygon.

Assumes row vectors or matrices whereby each row describes a polygon with points appearing in the order defining the polygon

## Examples

V=[0 0 0; 1 0 0; 1 1 0; 0 1 0]; [Xc,Yc]=polycentroid(V(:,1)',V(:,2)')

Xc = 0.5000 Yc = 0.5000

F=[1 2 3 4]; %Face cFigure; hold on; gpatch(F,V,'w','k',0.5); plotV(V,'k.','MarkerSize',25) plot(Xc,Yc,'r.','MarkerSize',50) axisGeom; gdrawnow;
