Expert Answer:

Dear student,
 
The point at which a system of masses would balance if placed on a pivot. In a binary star system, the center of mass would lie nearer to the more massive component. In the case of a single mass, the center of gravity, for the sake of simplicity of calculations, is the point at which it can be assumed all the mass is concentrated.
