1. Prove that the whole pressure of a liquid on a surface is equal to the weight of a column of liquid, of which the base is equal to the area of the surface and the height is equal to the depth of its centre of gravity below the surface of the liquid.

A cylindrical vessel of height 2h and radius of base h is filled with two 20 liquids, which do not mix. The volume occupied by each liquid is the same, but the density of one is twice that the other. Find the whole pressure on each of the two portions into which the curved sarface of the cylinder is divided by the surface of separation of the liquids.

2. A cylinder 4 feet high and 5 square feet in section, with its upper 20 end closed and lower end open, is lowered into water until its top is. 14 feet below the level of the surface of the water. Air is then pumped into it till it is three-fourths full of air. Given the height of the water. barometer to be 34 feet, find the volume the air would occupy at atmos. pheric pressure.

3. Find the centre of pressure of a triangle whose base is in the sur. 10 face of a homogeneous liquid.

A square lamina ABCD is immersed with one side AB in the surface 20 of a homogeneous liquid Find the distance between the centres of preg. sure of the two triangles ABC, BCD.

4. Describe Nicholson's Hydrometer, and show how it can be used to 15 compare the specific gravities of a solid and a liqaid.

The weight required to sink a Nicholson's Hydrometer to the fixed 16 mark is 3 72 grammes.

A substance is placed in the upper cup and it requires 3.34 grammes to sink the instrument to the fixed level. When the sabstance is placed in the lower cnp a weight of 3-53 grammes is required. Find the specific gravity of the substance.

5. The spout of a common pomp is 20 feet above the snrface of the 25 water in the reservoir, the diameter of the piston is one foot and the piston range is 23 feet. Given also that the height of the water-barometer is 33 feet and that the piston makes 10 strokes a minute, find the weight of water discharged per minute and the tension of the piston rod when the pump is full,

6. Show that at a place whose latitude is a the time of apparent revolution of the plane of oscillation of a pendulum is Tcosec a, where T is the time of revolution of the earth abont its axis.

7. Show that the refraction of a heavenly body, the temperature and 15pressure being constant, varies as the tangent of the apparent zenith distance. Describe some method of determining the coefficient of refraction.

8. What are precession and nutation ? To what physical causes are 15 they due ? By what observations can their existence be detected ?

9. Show that each star aberrates towards a point on the ecliptic 90° 15. behind the sun, and that the aberration varies as the sine of the earth's way.
