## Hydraulics & Fluid Mechanics Metacentric height is given as the distance between

the center of gravity of the body andthe meta center
center of buoyancy and metacentre
the center of gravity of the body and the center of buoyancy
the center of gravity of the body and the center of pressure

## Hydraulics & Fluid Mechanics Select the correct statement

Local atmospheric pressure depends upon elevation of locality only
A barometer reads the difference be-tween local and standard atmospheric pressure
Standard atmospheric pressure is the mean local atmospheric pressure a* sea level
Local atmospheric pressure is always below standard atmospheric pressure
