Centers of Gravity, CG
Weight of a body can be represented by an equivalent force
acting at its center of gravity G.
Assume a uniform and parallel force field due to gravitational
attraction for most problems
Weight W = mg where m is the mass of the body and g is the
magnitude of gravitational acceleration.
The center of gravity of is a unique point which is a function of
weight distribution only.

Centroids
If the density is constant and and gravity field is uniform
parallel, G and center of mass coincide with the
and parallel
centroid of the body.
The centroid C is the geometrical center or the weighted
average position of an object.
Locating the centroid by averaging the moments of
axes
The centroid lies on the axis of symmetry.
Geometry of the body is the only factor that influence the
position of the centroid.

Concepts #1
Centroid, center of mass and center of gravity
respectively represent the centers of geometry, mass
and weight.

Pappus theorems can be used to find the surface area

and volume of revolutions.

Apart from moments of forces, there are several kinds of

moments. The first moment of area is a property of cross
section that is used to predict its resistance to shear
stress. The moment of inertia quantifies the rotational
inertia of a body. The polar moment of inertia is a
property of cross section that is used to predict its
resistance to torsion.
