• Center of gravity (CG) is the average location of an object’s weight distribution.
• A human’s CG is located roughly near the center of the torso but it shifts depending on the character’s pose.
• The CG is located directly above or below a pivot point of balance.
• The CG is located directly below the point of suspension for a hanging object.
