What is the difference between the centre of mass and centre of gravity ?

Asked by Sonali Ratha | 5th Oct, 2013, 08:50: PM

Expert Answer:

The center of mass is a geometrical measurement not considering the weight distribution.

The center of gravity is one location on a particular mass structure where the distribution of weight is the same no matter the direction of the measurement as it pertains to that one particular mass structure.
