According to the video I saw made by Tim McCarver and a physics professor the center of mass is about 1.5" to 2" from the end of a wood bat. This fluctuates depending on the shape (turning model) of the bat. It's nearly 3" from the endcap on a typical high end aluminum bat.

Bookmark the Baseball horizontally on your finger wherever there was a center of gravity is balanced.

The handle. A baseball bat is a third class lever. The resistance is the end, and the effort and fulcrum are the handle.

Draw a line through all the different verticals and horizontal balance points of the club then the intersection of all those lines is the centre of gravity

### What is the center of gravity on a sphere?

Assuming the ball is a perfect sphere of uniform density, and is suspended from a massless string, the centre of gravity is in the centre of the ball.

### Which Golf iron do you use for hitting the ball high?

As in club? A 7 iron up. But as in type, an oversized iron with a low centre of gravity, this will help get the ball in the air, and therefore get the ball to stop on the green quicker.

### Would a golf ball have more or less potential energy on the moon than it does on earth?

On the moon. When a golf ball is struck on earth, gravity slows it and brings it to a halt. On the moon, there is very little gravity, so the potential energy of the golf ball is limitless.

### What is COG of golf club?

The COG of a golf club is the centre of gravity. The clubs are designed to have a low COG to get the ball airborne. For high handicap clubs, there is a lot of weight to the club, drawing the COG to make sure the ball gets up easier, and also makes the clubs very forgiving.

### Does a golf ball fall when dropped on the Moon?

Yes. The moon has gravity.

### What is call the golf ball what is it?

A golf ball is a small ball (with a dimpled surface) that is used in the game of golf. It has a small centre of semi-liquid latex rubber, which is surrounded by a wrapping of a narrow elastic ribbon to bring the ball to the correct size (volume). There is an outer harder plastic skin to produce the finished golf ball.

### What is a backweight?

A backweight is a weight attached to the back of a golf club in order to give it a lower centre of gravity.

### Why wide sole on golf clubs?

Wide soles on golf clubs are more forgiving if you catch the ground slightly before the ball it will slide along to the ball and still go pretty well, unlike with a thinner sole where it could go right into the ground and the ball would go right in front of you. They also allow the manufacturer to put the centre of gravity lower and to the back thus making it easier to get the ball in the air.

### How does the moon low gravity affect the game of golf?

the higher the ball goes it starts floating

### What type of energy is a golf ball hit?

if the golf ball is hit into the air, the forces on the golf ball are pushing (when the golf ball is hit) and air resistance (when it is flying through the air). when the ball hits the ground and starts to roll, the only force acting on it is friction.
