#### Transcript of CENTER OF GRAVITY - PHYSICS.

CENTER OF GRAVITY The center of gravity is a geometric property of any object. The center of gravity is the average location of the weight of an object. What is the Center of Gravity? The center of gravity of a collection of masses is the point where all the weight of the object can be considered to be concentrated. 3 Kinds of Equilibrium 1. Stable - center of gravity is at the lowest possible position

2. Unstable - center of gravity is at the highest possible position

3. Neutral - the center of gravity is neither lowered nor raised up 1. the object with lower center of gravity is more stable than the one with the higher center of gravity.
2. the object with greater mass is more stable.
3. the object with larger base is more stable. Factors that determine the Stability of Object: How To Determine the Center of Gravity:

1. Balancing by Hanging

2. Plumb line Method

* Not all the location of center of gravity can be found inside an object. it may be found within the area of the object. Factors affecting the
stability of an object: 1. Weight
2. Area of the Base
3. Location of the Center of Gravity STABLE: UNSTABLE: NEUTRAL: A body is in stable equilibrium if it returns to its equilibrium position after it has been displaced slightly. A body is in unstable equilibrium if it does not return to its equilibrium position and does not remain in the displaced position after it has been displaced slightly.
