Description Standard Features The apparatus consists of a self-contained bench • Supplied with comprehensive user guide complete with all necessary equipment for a wide range • Five-year warranty of demonstrations and experiments in hydrostatics and properties of fl uids. Much of the equipment is rigidly • Made in accordance with the latest European Union mounted on the bench, the remainder being free-standing directives items suitable for use on the bench top. • ISO9001 certified manufacturer The bench has a reservoir that supplies for the experiments. A tank on the unit can be fi lled from the Learning outcomes reservoir for experiments that need a free-water surface. • Determination of fl uid density and specifi c gravity A drain tray next to the tank is for collecting and returning water to the reservoir. • Principles and use of a hydrometer The bench is readily movable and is therefore ideal • Capillarity in tubes and between plates for lecture room demonstrations as well as student • Measurement of viscosity by falling method experiments. • Demonstration of Pascal’s law Experimental equipment supplied with the bench includes a fl uid-level apparatus for demonstrating Pascal’s law, • Measurement of fl uid levels by vernier hook gauge and two U-tube manometers. A toroidal sloped tank is • Fluid fl ow head relationship mounted within an integrated balance to determine centre of pressure. Archimedes’ principle is proved by using a • Verifi cation of Archimedes’ principle and demonstration fi xed immersed in a header of water mounted on of principles of fl otation a beam balance. Further items of equipment include a • Stability of a fl oating body and determination of Bourdon pressure gauge with deadweight calibration, and metacentric height a rectangular pontoon with adjustable for studies of a fl oating body and metacentric height. • Measurement of and centre of pressure on a plane surface Included with the H314 is the H2 MkII for the study of the metacentric height of a fl oating body. • Operation and calibration of a Bourdon pressure gauge Apparatus for determination of fl uid properties includes a Eureka can, a specifi c-gravity bottle, a hydrometer • U-tube manometers with fl uids of diff erent density capillarity apparatus, a falling-sphere and a vernier point gauge for fl uid level measurement. Recommended Ancillaries • Balance (H314a) – Searle’s torsion balance with scale and pointer for the determination of the surface tension of . • Hares Tube (H314b) – Hares tube to establish the specifi c gravity of a liquid when compared with water. • Half Circle and Vee Chine Pontoons (H2a MkII)
