HB 200 HYDROSTATICS BENCH
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The equipment is a self contained unit for the study of basic properties of fluids in hydrostatic conditions.  Water is provided in a  storage tank of the bench with a pump to deliver water for the experiments. Accessories for individual experiments are placed on the bench panel and can also be stored in the bench cabinet. The unit is on steel frame on wheels.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Measurement of level, pressure, temperature, specific gravity, viscosity, humidity.
  • Demonstration of Pascal ,s  law, Archimedes principles, capillary effect, hydrostatic pressure.
  • Determination of metacentric height.
  • Calibration of pressure gauge.
