The center of mass of a system of equal particles is their average position; in other words, it is that point whose distance from any fixed plane is the average of the distances of all the particles of the system.
When the particles have different masses their distances must be weighted, that is, the distance of each particle must by multiplied by the masss of the particle before taking the average.

Furthermore, just as the telescope we are modeling, when we want to “balance it” we mean that we want to adjust its equivalent “center of mass” or “center of gravity” to be at the point of rotation.
If there is slightly more mass on one side of the pivot than the other, the beam will rotate until the moments due to the action of gravity on each mass creates a moment or torque of equal magnitude and opposite direction on each side of the pivot.
In the first experiment we calculated unknown weights (or masses) by “balancing” them against a known mass until the beam was level, and measuring the distance of each hanging point from the pivot’s Cr.

 Virginia Hospital Center - Abdominal Mass
An abdominal mass is a localized swelling or enlargement in one area of the abdomen.
An abdominal mass can be a sign of an abscess, a problem with a blood vessel (such as an aneurysm), an enlarged organ (such as the liver, spleen, or kidney), a tumor, or an accumulation of feces.
All masses should be examined by the health care provider (in fact, most abdominal masses are first noticed by the provider, not by the affected person).

 SparkNotes: Conservation of Momentum: Center of Mass
The concept of the center of mass allows us to describe the movement of a system of particles by the movement of a single point.
We will use the center of mass to calculate the kinematics and dynamics of the system as a whole, regardless of the motion of the individual particles.
Thus the position of the center of mass is a point in space that is not necessarily part of either particle.
