A body is having only one center of gravity for all positions of the body. It is represented by CG. If we suspend the body as shown in figure, from any point such as A, the body will be in equilibrium under the action of the tension in the cord and the resultant W of the gravitational forces acting on all particles of the body.
Centre of gravity is that point about which the summation of the first moments of the weights of the elements of the body is zero. For all practical purposes these lines of action will be concurrent at a single point G, which is called the centre of gravity of the body.
This point is called the centre of mass and clearly coincides with the centre of gravity as long as the gravity field is treated as uniform and parallel. The remaining expression defines a purely geometrical property of the body. The term centroid is used when the calculation concerns a geometrical shape only. Calculation of centroid falls within three distinct categories, depending on whether we can model the shape of the body involved as a line, an area or a volume.
Therefore intersection of these two axes gives the centroid of the rectangle. You just clipped your first slide! Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.

The centroid of a volume can be thought of as the geometric center of that shape. If this volume represents a part with a uniform density like most single material parts then the centroid will also be the center of mass, a point usually labeled as 'G'. Just as with the centroids of an area, centroids of volumes and the center of mass are useful for a number of situations in the mechanics course sequence, including the analysis of distributed forces, simplifying the analysis of gravity which is itself a distributed force , and as an intermediate step in determining mass moments of inertia. Just as with areas, the location of the centroid or center of mass for a variety of common shapes can simply be looked up in tables, such as the table provided in the right column of this website. However, we will often need to determine the centroid or center mass for other shapes and to do this we will generally use one of two methods. On this page we will only discuss the first method, as the method of composite parts is discussed in a later section. The tables used in the method of composite parts however are derived via the first moment integral, so both methods ultimately rely on first moment integrals.
The centre centroid represents the centre of mass that is in the cross-section of the diagonals of the body, and gravity — the weight, the attractive force between particles in the universe under which the celestial bodies move. This concept allows the whole object to be viewed as one material point whose mass is equal to the total mass of that body. The centre of mass exists for any system of material points, regardless of whether a force is acting on the system or not. The centre of the mass is the point where the gravitational force is acting on the body. The centre of gravity of the triangle is in the cross-section of the angle bisections and the centre of gravity of the cube in the cross section of its diagonals. This is the point that is at an average distance from all the particles of a system or individual body particle, where the total external force is acting on the particle system or the body. If a particle or body system moves under the influence of an external force, the point at which the centre of gravity is located moves as if it contains all the mass of the system or body.
