Stability Of A Floating Body.
Stability Of A Floating Body Technical Description This simple apparatus for determining the metacentre of a model hull is particularly suitable for experiments in small groups. The experiments are performed in a tank filled with water. A transparent hull is used with a rectangular cross-section. Horizontal and vertical sliding weights enable the center of gravity to be adjusted. The position of the sliding weights as well as the draught of the floating body can be read on scales. An inclinometer indicates the angle of heel.
