Hydrostatic Pressure Apparatus.
Hydrostatic Pressure Apparatus Technical Description The apparatus comprises a transparent measuring container that is filled with water for the experiments. A scale on the tank permits the water levels to be read off with precision. The counterbalanced tank swivels on a bearing. When the tank angle is set to zero using a lever with appropriate weights, the force acting on the surface can be determined. This force is an important design parameter in shipbuilding and hydraulic engineering.
