Hydrostatic pressure refers to the pressure that any fluid in a confined space exerts. If fluid is
in a container, there will be some pressure on the wall of that container. The effect of
hydrostatic pressure is highly important in many fields of engineering: in shipbuilding, in
hydraulic engineering when designing locks and weirs, in sanitation and building services. The
SMT-FM-04B experimental unit offers typical experiments to study hydrostatic pressure in
liquids at rest.
This Apparatus consists of a quadrant assembled to the arm of a scale that swings around an
axis. When the quadrant is immersed in the water tank, the force that acts on the flat
rectangular front surface exerts a momentum with respect to the supporting axis. The
swinging arm is fitted with a tray and an adjustable counter balance. The tank has adjustable
supporting legs for levelling. It has a drainage valve. The level reached by the water inside the
tank is indicated by a graduated scale.
