# Distance from Center of Gravity to Triangle Base Calculator

In a triangle, the centre of gravity is the intersection of three medians of the triangle. Centroid is located 2/3 of the distance from the vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side of the triangle. It always lies inside the triangle, even if it have different angle measurement. Using this online Distance from Center of Gravity to Triangle Base Calculator, calculate the distance from the centroid to the base of the triangle based on the height of the triangle.

### Example:

For a triangle with a height of 12 mm, calculate distance from center of gravity to triangle base.

#### Solution,

A = h / 3

= 12 / 3

= 4 mm

Center of gravity in the triangle is the point of balance of mass or body which determines the distance from center to base of the triangle.
