Center of Gravity

  1. Nov 13, 2003 #1
    An automobile has 58% of its weight on the front wheels. The front and back wheels are separated by 2 m. Where is the center of gravity located with respect to the front wheels?

    Need help setting up the problem.
    Thanks

    Ask yourself: What are all the forces acting on the car? And where do they act?

    Or: Think of it as a balanced lever, and find the pivot.
