01 Centre of Gravity

Every body in the universe has a centre of gravity.

Centre of gravity of a body is that part in the body where the mass of the body is centered or concentrated.

This point is also known as the centre of mass of that body.

Any body is built with many tiny particles and each of such particles has a mass

The sum total of the mass of all the particles in a body constitutes the centre of gravity

The centre of gravity of a body is a fixed point in that body where the complete weight of the object acts irrespective of the position of that body.

The conditions for objects to be stable are - the base of the object should be broad, the centre of gravity should be as low as possible and the vertical line through the gravity should fall within the base of the object.
