Center of Gravity
Name: Cheryl H.
When centre of gravity and centre of buoyancy are not
equal as in a person in water, how do get the body weight to balance out?
When there are unbalanced forces then movement occurs. In the case of a
person in water they will float up until the center of gravity and center
of buoyancy are the same.
