# centreOfMass: Computes the centre of mass of the tree In treecm: Centre of Mass Assessment and Consolidation of Trees

## Description

The x coordinate of the centre of mass is defined as \frac{∑(m_ix_i)}{∑(m_i)} where m_i is the biomass of the i^{th} branch and x_i is the x coordinate of the i^{th} branch. y and z coordinates are similarly computed. The centre of mass computation excludes branches to be pruned (ie: those whose toBePruned value is set to TRUE).

## Usage

 1 centreOfMass(object) 

## Arguments

 object A data frame of class vectors

## Value

A vector holding x, y, z coordinates of the centre of mass
