    What is g? Typically it is acceleration due to gravity, but that doesn't seem to suit this question..

    in the 3 cases i.e.
    1.solid sphere
    2.hollow sphere
    3.a sphere half filled with some liquid
    where will the center of mass be situated and the spheres are assumed to be made of same material
