## Where is the centroid of an object?

**The point corresponding to the geometric center of an object** is known as the centroid. Depending on the shape of the object, one, two, or three coordinates may be needed in order to define its exact position in space. If a shape possesses an axis of symmetry, then its centroid will always be located on that axis.

## What is the Centre of gravity?

Your centre of gravity is **the point where the mass of the body is concentrated**. The centre of gravity (COG) of the human body is a hypothetical point around which the force of gravity appears to act. It is point at which the combined mass of the body appears to be concentrated.

## How is a centroid formed?

The centroid of a triangle is formed **when three medians of a triangle intersect**. It is one of the four points of concurrencies of a triangle. The medians of a triangle are constructed when the vertices of a triangle are joined with the midpoint of the opposite sides of the triangle.
