## Determination of Metacentric Height of a Floating Body

A point about which a floating body tries to oscillate is called the metacenter of that body. The distance between metacenter (M) and the center of gravity (G) of the floating body is known as metacentric height (GM).

## Factors Affecting Selection of Hydraulic Turbine

The hydraulic turbines or water turbines are important hydraulic machines of the hydropower plant that convert the hydraulic energy into mechanical energy. There are different types of turbines such as a Pelton turbine, Kaplan turbine, Francis turbine, bulb ...
