Where does centre of gravity and centre of mass differ?, Physics

WHERE DOES C.O.G AND C.O.M DIFFER?....GENERALLY BOTH COINCIDES....GIVE EXAMPLE WHERE BOTH DIFFER?

Ans) C.O.G and C.O.M mainly coincides at the see-level region.But C.O.G is a variable and changes with the value "g" and thus "Mg" of any body also changes.e.g At high altitudes like himalayas, mountains(C.O.G & C.O.M)differs,at the depth of earth,s surfaces. C.O.M is constant everywhere in the universe.
