Locating the CG

Location of the CG relative to the axles and the ground plane.

Locating the Center of Gravity is important to help figure out the handling characteristics of the car. CATIA has a very simple way of calculating the CG of an assembly. After all the individual component densities are applied, an overall mass and location of CG can be found. Currently the mass of the car is 2.36 Kg (5.2 lbs).
