Interpretation of Mass Properties


New member
Could any one help me with some detailed guidelines as to how do we interpret the Centre of Gravity, Moment of Inertia preferably with a sample case particularly in view of the default axes and assumptions made by Pro-Engineer? Any further reference material with specific reference to usage of these techniques in Pro-E?

CG & Moment of Inertia are physical quantities and as such aren't much open to interpretation.

You can select a csys to compute about.

Do you actually know what these properties are ? They can be found in basic physics and technical text books.
