Description

STABILITY OF A FLOATING BODY

STABILITY OF A FLOATING BODY:The study of floating body stability is very important in fluid mechanics fundamentals.
PHOTON module consists on a floating prismatic base of acrylic, in which a vertical mast has been placed on it. An adjustable mobile mass has been added to vary the position of the center of gravity. An adjustable traverse mass allows varying the inclination of the floating base .It has a plumb line, joined to the superior part of the mast that is used to measure the inclination angle of the floating base with the help of a graduated scale. In order to complete the demonstration of the Meta centric height apparatus we need a number of pieces of equipment.
