Centre Of Gravity (A Level)



Centre of gravity is the point on an object through which the entire weight of the object may be considered to act.

Stability of an object refers to its ability to return to its original position after it has been displaced from that position.

  •  A body is said to be in stable equilibrium if it returns to its original position after it has been displaced slightly.

Low centre of gravity and a wide base help to make an object more stable

  •  Object can be turned through a larger angle without toppling
