Center Of Gravity Experiment

According to, center of gravity is the place in a system or body where the weight is evenly dispersed and all sides are in balance. You become very familiar with your center of gravity when you ice skate, try to stand on one leg, or if you take up tight rope walking.

Today’s Lab Report is an interesting center of gravity experiment. Can you balance 2 forks on one side of a toothpick with nothing on the other? Try it.
