If a rigid body is thrown into the air without spinning, it does not spin during its flight, provided air resistance can be ignored. What does this simple result imply about the location of the center of gravity?

If the rigid body does not spin, it means that the body does not experience any net torque. Therefore the location of center of gravity should be such that it lies on the axis of rotation of the body.
