and c) are "equivalent force couple systems by replacing the individual small weights by the total weight, which acts at the center of gravity G. b) If the gravitational field is uniform, which is generally true if the object is not enormous the center of gravity coincides with the center of mass coordinates in the plane perpendicular to the direction of gravity. The same basic formula with the acceleration due to gravity divided out can be used to find all three
