Neutral Equilibrium

[MECH] or INDIFFERENT EQUILIBRIUM - This results when the center of gravity of a body which is in equilibrium is in the central portion of the body, and cannot therefore arise into a higher or descend into a lower position. A sphere is always in neutral equilibrium. (Horner, J. G. ; Dictionary of Terms Used in Mechanical Engineering; The Technical Press, Ltd., London, England, 1960)
