Fluid Properties Apparatus

Fluid Properties Apparatus


Fluid Properties Apparatus .

A clear understanding about the physical properties of fluids is essential before studying the behaviour of fluids in static or dynamic applications.

This apparatus introduces students to the following properties of fluids:

  • Density and relative density (specific gravity)
  • Viscosity
  • Capillarity - capillary elevation between flat plates and in circular tubes
  • Buoyancy (Archimedes principle)
  • Atmospheric pressure
