EQUILIBRIUM AND CENTRE OF GRAVITY.

Centre of gravity

Centre of gravity or C.G is the point of balance of a body in which the total weight of the body seems to act through.

For regular shaped bodies the C.G is at the geometric centre of the body. For irregular bodies their weight still acts at the centre of the gravity and the law of moments can be used to determine the weight of the body.
