A body floating in a liquid is said to be in a stable equilibrium, if its metacentre coincides with its centre of gravity.

 [A]. True [B]. False

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Sakthivel K said: (Oct 23, 2013) For a stable equilibrium the metacentre should lie above the centre of gravity. For a neutral equilibrium the metacentre should coincide with centre of gravity.

 Sunny said: (Jun 25, 2015) For stable M greater than Cg. Neutral equilibrium M=Cg.

 Gopala Krishnan said: (Jul 15, 2015) What is meant by metacentre?

 Tej said: (Jan 25, 2016) Meta means changing, centre means point through which it rotates finally known as changing center. A body tilted about a point stability, neutrally, unstably is known as meta centric point.

 Abhishek Lunge said: (Feb 3, 2016) Metacentre is the point about which the body starts oscillating, and metacentric height is the difference between centre of gravity (cg) and metacentre.

 Apoorva said: (Mar 6, 2016) Answer should be true because at neutral condition, metacentre coincides with cg of body.

 Anil Ranshur said: (Feb 5, 2018) @Apoorva they asked for stable condition. Answer 'A' is correct.

 Pranav said: (Feb 5, 2018) Easy code: Stabe eq.--- M a G & B a G above. Ustab eq --- M b G & B b G below. Netrl eq --- MG & BG Coinside.
