Thermo-Fluid Lab Prof. Taha Aldoss 1 Exp. 1: CENTER OF PRESSURE I. Objective: 1. To determine experimentally the center of pressure on a vertical immersed surface 2. To compare the experimental results with the calculated theoretical results The experiment is to be carried out for both the fully immersed as well as the partially immersed surfaces. II. Description of the experiment setup: A vertical surface is made to immerse inside a tank full of water The hydrostatic force of water on the surface is balanced by a moment about a pivot using known weights IV. Procedure: 1. Level the base of the apparatus 2. Fill the apparatus with water 3. Use all balancing weights available 4. Reduce the balancing weights gradually 5. Keep the apparatus in balance for each set of balancing weights by draining water out. 6. Record the following variables for each step: a. the height of the water surface b. the value of the weights 7. Measure the dimensions of the immersed surface 8. Repeat until the whole surface is uncovered of water

    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.
