  It shifts every time you change your posture because it’s the point at which the contributions from all over cancel out to zero. Each of those depends on distance from the centre,so moving an arm of leg will change it. Easiest way to understand ho. Centre of gravity, in physics, an imaginary point in a body of matter where, for convenience in certain calculations, the total weight of the body may be thought to be concentrated. The concept is sometimes useful in designing static structures (e.g., buildings and bridges) or in predicting the behaviour of a moving body when it is acted on by gravity. Gravity is the force that pulls your body toward the Earth. Three principles of gravity affect the body. Gravity is affected by your body's mass. For you to stand upright, you must properly align your bones and muscles to compensate for gravity. Understanding the principles of gravity can help you increase your.

center of gravity: the midpoint or center of the weight of a body or object. In the standing adult human the center of gravity is in the midpelvic cavity, between the symphysis pubis and the umbilicus. The center of gravity (c.g.) of an erect person with arms at the side is at approximately 56% of the person's height measured from the soles of the feet (Fig. ).The center of gravity shifts as the person moves and bends. The act of balancing requires maintenance of the center of gravity above the feet. The center of gravity of a body is sometimes described as its balance point or that point about which a body would balance without a tendency to rotate. For this reason, the center of gravity is often identified as the point where all the weight of the body or object is concentrated. More accurately, it is the point where the weight of the body.   Our bodies function necessarily under the presence of gravity; how blood pumps, a sense of balance and bone growth are all due to life in a world where gravity is an inescapable reality.

The centre of gravity is the point at which gravity appears to be acting upon an object, this is for the most part the same as the point around which the mass of an object or person is equally distributed in all directions. For the average human, the centre of gravity is at the centre of the pelvis when they are standing in the anatomical position.

Centre of gravity is a point around which the gravitational force of mass elements of a body (e.g. of human body segments) is perfectly balanced. Determination of centre of gravity in human body If we know the gravitational force acting on individual segments and their position in relation to the origin of the chosen frame of reference, we can.
