A floating or submerged body is said to be stable if it comes back to its original position after giving a slight disturbance. The condition of stability of these bodies depends on the position of its metacentre, centre of buoyancy and centre of gravity. The relationship between these points and the stability of body is described below.

## Conditions Of Equilibrium Of Floating And Submerged Bodies

A floating or submerged body is said to be stable if it comes back to its original position after giving a slight disturbance. The condition of stability of these bodies depends on the position of its metacentre, centre of buoyancy and centre of gravity.
