This equipment is designed to determine the metacentric height of a floating body and the height variation with the tilt angle. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N or a bowl (separately supplied).

The equipment consists of a rectangular pontoon. The center of gravity of the pontoon can be moved sideways by moving horizontal jockey weight.

The angle of tilt of the pontoon is indicated by a plumb-bob on a scale attached. The center of gravity of the pontoon can also be moved vertically by means of adjustable vertical weights on the mast.

Instruction manual is also included.
