FL 01.3 – Hydrostatic Bench

This equipment is designed for the study of both properties, and the most important in the static fluid phenomena.


The user manual clearly shows with a large number of images, the entire process to be followed to use the equipment.

The practical manual shows and explains all the theoretical foundations, as well as the mathematical formulas used for the realization of all the experimentation.


This equipment aims the study and determination of the pressure force acting on a submerged surface in a liquid. It is a simple and completely autonomous equipment that can be located anywhere in the laboratory without any installation.

Liquids of different densities can be used to determine the influence of this on the exerted pressure force.

Included Accessory: FL 10.2 – METACENTRIC HEIGHT

The principle of Archimedes says that: “Every body submerged in a liquid experiences a vertical thrust and upward equal to the weight of the liquid dislodged”.

With this equipment is intended to study and calculate the metacentric height of a floating body, which pretends to be a boat.

Included Accessory: FL 13.1 – MANOMETER CALIBRATION

The objective of this equipment is the study and calibration of manometers, as well as the visualization and understanding of its operation.
