INTRODUCTION When an object immersed in fluid it experience two forces. One is the pressure force due to the fluid articles normal to the surface and the gravitational force. It is important to measure the hydrostatic force on the submerged bodies to know the balancing of the body in the respective fluid. It helps in the design of ships and airplane structure. The derived formulas and experimental methods are currently available to predict the hydrostatic force. (Bansal, 2006) OBJECTIVE To determine the hydrostatic thrust acting on the plane surface immersed in water when the surface is partially submerged or fully submerged. To determine the position of the line of action of the thrust and to compare the position determined by the experiment with the theoretical position. METHEDOLOGY The hydrostatic force developed is being balanced by counter mass. And the force is calculated by moment equilibrium method about a point. THEORY The theory behind this experiment is that the force on the submerged bodies acts normally on the immersed area. The normal force is being used to find out the moment acting through the pivot point.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
