ZM8207 Pascal’s apparatus Fluid Mechanics Lab Equipment Teaching Equipment
- This apparatus, designed to demonstrate Pascal’s principle, consists of a machined body incorporating a horizontal flexible diaphragm to which one of three alternative glass vessels can be fitted.
- The diameter at the base of each vessel is common but the shape of each vessel varies; one parallel sided, one conical and one tapering inwards.
- The diaphragm, located at the base of the vessel, conveys the force from the water inside the vessel to a lever arm with a sliding counterweight.
Parallel vessel: 26mm inside diameter
Conical vessel: 26mm to 101mm inside diameter at top
Tapered vessel 26mm to 9mm inside diameter at top
Diameter at diaphragm: 56mm
Maximum depth of water: 228mm (to top of vessels)
