1.2 or 3 dimentional body

2.find center of gravity by complex problem solving method or simple practical method

well the practical way is simple

hold the object between 2 flat things and try pushing one of its ends. now if it moves freely like a wheel then the line connecting the 2 points is an axis of the object

now try to find another set of points having the same property with respect to the object this will be your second axis

now the point of intersection of such axes is the center of gravity of your body
