Unformatted text preview: p a , the gas length l is l . The cylinder is weighted at the bottom (total weighted W c ) so that it rides in a vertical position when placed in water. The water density is ρ . • ( a ) Derive expressions for the gas space length l and submergence h of this device when it is in a static equilibrium position totally submerged in the water. • ( b ) Is this static equilibrium position stable, unstable, or neutrally stable? Prove your answer. 2.25 Advanced Fluid Mechanics 1 Copyright c ± 2010, MIT...
