Centre of gravity Structures & Materials Principal of moments involves Equilibrium show Torque F x d may produce Centre of mass have  CM =  ACM rotational equilibrium Stable Neutral Unstable types  F H = 0  F V = 0  M = 0 conditions

Uniform object - geometrical centre. Gravitational field strength, g, is the same everywhere for the body. Centre of Mass = Centre of gravity Centre of Mass  Centre of gravity Object is so large that the gravitational field strength may not be the same everywhere over the body. 1 m

Force d d Lever d is always at right angles to the line of action of the force Torque Pivot Point Torque = F x d

If slightly pushed, and released; returns to its original position remains displaced continues to move and c of m lowers Stable equilibrium Neutral equilibrium Unstable equilibrium
