No , the center of gravity is in a spot where balance is achieved, if an object is dimensionally heavier on one side, then the center of gravity would not be in the measurable center.

Is the center of gravity of an object is always located in the object?

No. In a doughnut for example, the center of gravity is in the center of the doughnut, which is not in the object.


Where does an object center of gravity always lie?

It is always different depending on the object. For example a female humans' center of gravity is in the hip. as a male humans' center of gravity is in the chest. But once you have found the center of gravity in an object the center of gravity should be the same in every object like it.


What is an object's center of gravity?

The center of gravity is a geometric property of any object. The center of gravity is the average location of the weight of an object.^_^


Is it possible for an object not to have a center of gravity?

No, but the centre of gravity need not be inside the object. Not unless Gravity is not a variable. But it is not possible for an object to not have a center of mass.


Does the center of gravity always have to be located withing an object?

No. The center of gravity of a wedding ring is in the space at the center of the ring. The center of gravity of the letter ' V ' is somewhere along the vertical line between the two slanted lines.


Can an object have two center of gravity?

No. The center is the center.


Does the center of gravity always lie on the body?

The center of gravity always lies within an object, and is the location at which the entire mass can be considered acting at a single point.For a system of more than one object, the center of gravity can lie anywhere between the farthest points of the objects, depending on the distribution of mass. The center of mass is called the barycenter.


Can an object have more than one center of gravity?

No, objects cannot have more than one center of gravity. The center of gravity of an object can however change.


Why must the intersection of the 3 lines be the center of GRAVITY of the irregularly shaped lamina?

Friend Hilmar Zonneveld is perfectly and absolutely right. Weight, being a vector, of an object will always act through the center of gravity. Also definition of centre of gravity confirms that whatever be the position the weight would always act through a point known to be center of gravity


What is the center of gravity for a spherical object?

If the object is homogeneous, its center of mass is in its geometrical center. And if it is small compared to Earth, its center of gravity is, for all practical purposes, its center of mass.


Why is the center of gravity in an object important?

the center of gravity is important in reaction to balance and stability..


How do you predict whether an object will topple dealimg with the center of gravity?

The center of gravity of an object is one factor in determining the stability of the object. The lower the center of gravity, the more stable the object. Other factors must be used for the prediction such as the shape of the base and overall structure.
