The center of mass of the vessel. The location of the Center of Gravity is dependent upon the distribution of all weight within and on the ship including the ship itself, it's cargo, supplies, armaments etc.
A model airplanes balance point.
The point at which all the weight of an aircraft can be considered to be centered. This is the balancing point.
A point where you are stable and can hit with power and consistency.
The point at which a plane will balance
The force of gravity acts on every individual part of an object, like an airplane. On an airplane it is the point at which all weight is considered to be concentrated. It is the point of balance. This center point is located along the longitudinal centerline. Its exact location is affected by such things as the amount of fuel it is holding, where its load is placed and the load's weight. A shift in the aircraft's center of gravity during flight will have an effect on the aircraft's stability and performance. chord line - An imaginary line connecting an airfoil's leading edge with its trailing edge.
The point at which a line drawn through the head and torso would extend to the ground.
The point of an object at which it will balance when lifted. For a safe and stable lift the load line must be directly above this point. The ability to discern the center of gravity is the responsibility of the rigger.
The point about which two bodies move as each revolves around the other. The point about which a body of mass is balanced in all directions.
The point at which the earth's gravitational force can be assumed to act on an object, for any calculations where the mass distribution is not important.
the point at which the mass (weight) of the body is centered
The point where the resultant of all weight forces will hang evenly from this point. Usually, on a model, this point is just forward of the main mast.
The point of intersection of the three primary planes ofthe body; the exact center of the body.
The center of gravity is the location of the heaviest point on a ball. This is usually marked by little punchmark oy symbol on the ball.
The point in a club head where all of the points of balance intersect. The lower the CG, the higher the ball flight. Higher CG clubs produce lower ball flight.
The point within a solid body through which, for balance purposes, the total force due to gravity is considered to act.
party's Center of Gravity consists of all the reasoning necessary to make its position accepted and stable (and its threats credible).
The point at which all of the weight of a body can be considered to be concentrated.
The point at which an item balances.
Perfectly balanced point in a club head.
The point at all of the vehicle's weight, including payload, is considered to be concentrated. Used for determining weight distribution when designing a suspension system.
The centre of gravity on an Indy car is the area of the car that could balance both the carâ€™s weight in the front and the back if it were suspended.
The fixed physical center of the combined weight of the container and its cargo.
Hypothetical point of equilibrium for an object, activity, or mental state.
The heaviest part of a bowling ball. The CG is signified by a dye mark placed on the ball by the manufacturer designating the center of the weight mass relative to the top of the ball.
The center of mass of an object that determines its symmetry and ease of handling.
(CG), also known (more precisely) as center of mass. In a distributed mass, an appropriately defined "average location" of its parts. If the mass is a rigid (=undeforming) body subject to the earth's gravity, then if it is supported at the CG, it will stay balanced and not tilt to any side. In a system subject only to internal forces, the center of gravity always stays in the same spot; hence the Earth-Moon system rotates around its mutual center of gravity (not around the Earth's center), and a rocket flies forwards when it ejects a high-speed stream of gas backwards.
The point at which the weight of the chassis, body/equipment, and payload, if collectively or individually supported, would balance vertically, horizontally, and laterally. (This engineering concept finds the center of the mass of an object.) The three measurements necessary to determine the CG of an object are defined as follows: (HCG) Horizontal: measured fore and aft from a reference plane(LCG) Lateral: measured from center line of the vehicle to the side(VCG) Vertical: measured up or down from a reference plane.
the modern term for sweet spot; called CG for short; if a clubhead (without the shaft) is balanced on a pencil, the balance point will be the center of gravity; contemporary club designers, using lighter materials, elongated clubheads and other weighting schemes, have been able to move the CG to suit their needs.
1) The point, at which, no matter how the ball is rotated, it will weigh the same. 2) It is the point at which the entire mass of a bowling ball acts as if it is concentrated. 3) The point on the surface of the bowling ball where static balance is zero for both finger and side weights; usually marked by a logo.
The shifting point in the body, roughly in the center of the abdomen, which locates the “sinkability”. The conflict between the center of gravity and the CENTER OF BUOYANCY produces torque which produces WAVE-DRAG.
The center of gravity is the point around which a body will rotate assuming no external forces are currently being applied. The location of the COG in a person varies depending on several factors. Typically a male's COG is a bit higher than a female's COG.
Balancing point of an aircraft.
that point in the clubhead where the most mass is located. Also called center of mass.
Point where the weight of a vehicle is concentrated so that suspended, front and rear would be balanced.
see Center of Mass
The point at which a mass can be supported, in any position, and remain in equilibrium without tipping.
The center of gravity of a body is that point in the body through which passes the resultant of weights of its component particles for all orientations of the body with respect to a uniform gravitational field.
The point at which the mass of the aircraft is balanced. This changes depending on the loading of the aircraft: fuel, passengers, luggage, etc. Different aircraft have CG limits specified by their manufacturer. If the CG of the aircraft in its current configuration is outside of the specified limits, the aircraft may be unsafe to fly. For example, if the CG is behind the aft (rear) CG limit, the aircraft will tend to stall.
The force of gravity acts on every individual part of an object, like an airplane. However, engineers often treat the force of gravity on all the parts of an object as a single force acting on a point in the object called the center of gravity.
The distribution of weight around a point of balance
the balance point of a model airplane.
distribution of weight around a balance point
The position in which the ball is evenly balanced statically in all directions. This is usually indicated by the position of the logo or punch mark. The "Eye of the Storm".
The point of equilibrium of the total weight of a containership, truck, train or a piece of cargo.
An imaginary point representing the weight center of an object; the point about which the object balances in every direction. The center of gravity is that point at which the gravitational potential energy of the body is equal to that of a single particl e of the same mass located at that point and through which the resultant of the gravitational forces on the component particles of the body act.
That point in a body about which all the parts exactly balance each other in all directions.
An imaginary point around which the weight of a vehicle is centered. A lower center of gravity improves handing stability and cornering agility. The center of gravity can be lowered by installing shorter suspension springs and/or low profile tires.
The point at which the resultant gravitational force acts upon an object. The center of gravity is not necessarily inside the object. For example, the center of gravity of a ring is at the center of symmetry. If the geometry of the object does not change with time, the center of gravity will remain unchanged in relation to the object. The mathematical definition of center of gravity is where vector describes the position of the object in a given coordinate system, = () is the density, and is the volume of the object.
That point in a body or system around which the whole mass is concentrated and may be assumed to act. It is the location of the heaviest point on a ball. It is the point on the surface of the bowling ball where static balance is zero in all directions on a do-do scale - usually marked by a logo.
