2Center of MassThe center of mass of an object is the point located at the object’s average position of mass. (CM)The center of gravity of an object is the point located at the object’s average position of weight. (CG)**For this course, we can use the terms Center of Gravity [CG] and Center of Mass [CM] interchangeably in most scenarios**
3Location of the Center of Mass For a symmetrical object, such as a baseball, the center of mass is at the geometric center of the object.For an irregularly shaped object, such as a baseball bat, the center of mass is toward the heavier end.
411.3 Center of MassThe center of mass for each object is shown by the red dot.
5Center of MassThe centers of mass of the baseball and of the spinning baseball bat each follow parabolic paths…All objects thrown in the air will rotate about their CG in this way
6Center of MassAs an object slides across a surface, its center of mass follows a straight-line path.If the wrench were tossed into the air, its center of mass would follow a smooth parabola.
7Center of MassObjects not made of the same material throughout may have the center of mass quite far from the geometric center.Consider a hollow ball half filled with lead. The center of mass would be located somewhere within the lead part.The ball will always roll to a stop with its center of mass as low as possible.
8Locating the Center of Gravity The center of gravity (CG) of a uniform object is at the midpoint, its geometric center.The CG is the balance point.Supporting that single point supports the whole object.
9Center of GravityThe weight of the entire stick behaves as if it were concentrated at its center. The small vectors represent the force of gravity along the meter stick, which combine into a resultant force that acts at the CG.

11Center of GravityThe CG of an object may be located where no actual material exists.The CG of a ring lies at the geometric center where no matter exists.The same holds true for a hollow sphere such as a basketball.
12Center of Gravity of People The center of gravity of a person is not located in a fixed place, but depends on body orientation.
13Center of Gravity of People When you stand straight up with your arms hanging at your sides, your CG is within your body, typically 2 to 3 cm below your navel, and midway between your front and back.Raise your arms vertically overhead. Your CG rises 5 to 8 cm.Bend your body into a U or C shape and your CG may be located outside your body altogether.
14Center of Gravity of People A high jumper executes a “Fosbury flop” to clear the bar while his CG nearly passes beneath the bar.
15Center of Gravitythink!Can an object have more than one CG?
16Center of Gravity think! Can an object have more than one CG? Answer: Yes & NoNo more than one CG at a time…BUT the location of an object’s CG can change!A rigid object has one CG.If a non rigid object, such as a piece of clay or putty (or a person!) is distorted into different shapes, then its CG may change as its shape is changed.Even then, it has one CG for any given shape.
17B & C WILL topple A will NOT topple THE RULE FOR TOPPLING(back of your paper)If the center of gravity of an object is DIRECTLY ABOVE the area of support, the object will remain upright.B & CWILLtoppleA will NOT topple
18will NOT topple will NOT topple WILL topple THE RULE FOR TOPPLINGThe block topples when the CG extends beyond its support base.will NOT topplewill NOT toppleWILLtopple
19will NOT topple THE RULE FOR TOPPLING The Leaning Tower of Pisa does not topple over because its CG lies above its base.will NOT topple
20AREA OF SUPPORTThe support base of an object does not have to be solid. An object will remain upright if the CG is VERTICALLY above its base of support.The shaded area bounded by the bottom of the chair legs defines the support base of the chair.When you stand, your CG is somewhere above the area bounded by your feet.
21Center of Gravity of People When you stand, your CG is somewhere above your support base, the area bounded by your feet.In unstable situations, as in standing in the aisle of a bumpy-riding bus, you place your feet farther apart to increase this area.Standing on one foot greatly decreases this area.

277.We don’t know exactly WHERE it is…just that it is ABOVE the area of support!
288.IN other words…Its CG is NOT above its area of support!
299.IN other words…Its CG is above its area of support!
30Station 2: CHAIR LIFT Let’s have a contest, boys vs. girls! Challenge a member of the opposite sex to compete in this activity with you.Stand EXACTLY 2 foot lengths away from a wall.Place a chair between yourself and the wallBend over with a straight back (so that your back is perfectly parallel with the floor, and perpendicular to the wall), and let your head lean against the wallKEEP YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL and lift the chair off the floor.Then, attempt to straighten up.2. FIVE minutes to complete the station and #16***HINT – READ P. 145!!!!
31Station 2: CHAIR LIFTWho has a LOWER CG?GirlsBoysSame
32Station 3: Wall StandStand with the back of your feet directly against a wall. Do not bend your knees, and try to touch your toes.1. FOUR minutes to complete the station and the questions!!
33Center of Gravity of People You can lean over and touch your toes without toppling only if your CG is above the area bounded by your feet.
