Volume of irregular or regular shape object is the space reserved by the object in any medium.

"displacement volume"

To calculate the volume of an irregular object you will need a container with meaurements and water. Place the irregular object in your container and fill with water until the entire object is covered. Record volume A. Then remove the irregular object and record volume B. The volume of your irregulare object is equal to volume A minus volume B.

Definition for center of gravity is the point where weight of the object balance in all direction. Finding the CG for any irregular shape or regular shape whether it is a rod or rock is all the same. You may hang the object at different angle, note the rope line drawn across the object. There will be only one cross over point of all the hanging line in all direction. That point is the CG of such object.
