I've a some x and y datas for draw a curve. How can I calculate Center of mass for this curve?

Define what you mean by the center of mass of a curve. A curve has no mass. Is this a closed curve, that defines a closed region in the plane? As such, you can compute the COM of a planar region.
Do you mean something else? Even at that, a set of points do not comprise a curve, unless you define some interpolation method on those points. So you need to explain CLEARLY what you are trying to do.
