# What Is The Importance Of Center Gravity?

In physics, the center of mass of a system of particles is a specific point at which, for many purposes, the system's mass behaves as if it were concentrated. The center of mass is a function only of the positions and masses of the particles that comprise the system. In the case of a rigid body, the position of its center of mass is fixed in relation to the object (but not necessarily in contact with it). In the case of a loose distribution of masses in free space, such as, say, shot from a shotgun, the position of the center of mass is a point in space among them that may not correspond to the position of any individual mass. In the context of an entirely uniform gravitational field, the center of mass is often called the center of gravity - the point where gravity can be said to act. Center of gravity is the sum (or the integral) of the moments of force from the weight of an object divided by the total weight.

To describe the importance of centre of gravity first of all I have to define the term as after the definition the importance becomes quite clear. The term is being used to describe the phenomenon in which there is a centre point and at that point the mass of the object is being concentrated. You can understand the phenomenon with the use of an example. If you take an object and hang it by tying it with a string, the centre of gravity of the object is just below the string and if you try to move the object in circular direction, its path is being decided by the centre of gravity.

When it comes to the importance of centre of gravity I can say that all the astronomical objects are based on this theory for their function. As we al know about the importance of astronomical objects, we can not deny the importance of centre of gravity.
