Center of Gravity of Rod with Weights

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“When two bodies of equal weight are connected by a rod, the centre of gravity will lie in the middle of that rod. When two bodies of unequal weight are so connected, the centre of gravity will be nearer to the heavier one. These principles are illustrated [here], in which C represents the centre of gravity.” —Quackenbos 1859
