Theory:

Centre of gravity:
  
The centre of gravity of an object is the point where the entire weight of the object appears to act.
 
Let's understand this with an example:
 
Try to balance a pencil on your finger tip. What do we observe? We can see that there is only one point which the pencil is balanced. The point which the pencil is balanced is called the center of gravity of the pencil.
 
Center of gravity on regular - shapes objects:  
Generally the center of gravity of the geometrically shaped object lies in the geometric center of the object.
In below figures you can see where the centre of gravity lies on regular shaped objects.

Thus, in this exercise we learned that,
  • The centre of gravity of an object is the point where the entire weight of the object appears to act.
  • The center of gravity of the geometrically shaped object lies in the geometric center of the object.
