FF-1104 Center Of Gravity

Experiments

  • To establish the position of the center of gravity of several different shapes by experiment, and to compare with values derived from calculation or reference books.

Description

This apparatus is designed to demonstrate the concept of center of gravity (CG) to the students and recognize the importance of center of gravity in design and structural engineering.

In this apparatus students will determine center of gravity of different bodies of regular and irregular shapes, CG of irregular shapes are determined by Plumb Line Method using the 4 holes in the plate.
