Center of Gravity

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“In a body of equal thickness, as a board, or a slab of marble, but otherwise of an irregular shape, the centre of gravity may be found by suspending it, first from one point, and then from another, and marking, by means of a plumb line, the perpendicular ranges from the point of suspension. the centre of gravity will be the point where these two lines cross each other.” -Comstock 1850
