Tutor description

It is important to know if a body is stable like a ship floating on the surface of a liquid and the stability depends on the height of the center of gravity. In this experiment, the stability of a pontoon will be found by changing its center of gravity at different heights which we can then use to compare to the theoretical stability that was calculated.

Floating BodySTABILITY OF A FLOATING BODYIntroductionIt is important to know if a body is stable like a ship floating on the surface of a liquid and the stability depends on the height of the center of gravity. In this experiment, the stability of a pontoon will be found by changing its center of gravity at different heights which we can then use to compare to the theoretical stability that was calculated. TheoryTo find out if the floating body is stable, this experiment is to find out the metacentric height, height of buoyancy, and the gradient of stability. The center of buoyancy mus
