Four problems in two dimensional geometry are presented, which are applicable to education of the basic courses, statics. These problems represent geometrical concepts that are understandable by engineering students. For example, consider a triangle made from a uniform rod. If we draw the inscribed circle of this triangle, and concentrate the weight of each side on the point at which in circle touches the side, center of the gravity of the three concentrated masses is located at the center.
