Purpose:Demonstrate finding center of mass for an irregularly-shapped object
Description:When the object is suspended from one of the holes along its perimeter, the center of mass will be directly below the suspension point, as defined by the plumb bob. When the object is suspended from the hole at its center of mass, it remains stable in any angular position.
See also demonstration B1-09: CENTER OF MASS - TRIANGLE. These two demonstrations use the same stand and are often taught together.
