Study of the stability of a floating body. Different Positions of the center of gravity.

Description

The module consists on a floating prismatic base of methacrylate, in which a vertical mast has been placed; on it, an adjustable mobile mass has been added to vary the position of the center of gravity. An adjustable traverse mass allows varying the inclination of the floating base .It has a plumb line, joined to the superior part of the mast that is used to measure the inclination angle of the floating base with the help of a graduated scale.
