in order to float, how much water must ship displace?
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A ship that has a mass 10 million kg must displace how much fresh water in order to float?
A. 10 million N
B. 9.8 million N
C. 98 million N
D. 980 million N
Wrong Points Earned: 0/1
Correct Answer: A
Your Response: D
2. Relevant equations
rho(water)=1000kg/m^3 or 1g/cm^3
3. The attempt at a solution
to float the buoyant force must equal the weight of the boat?
??wait, where am i solving for?? there is no open variable that needs solving egh....

If the ship has a mass of 10 million kg and displaces the same amount (mass) of water, what is the weight of the water? Remember, weight = mass * g
|buoyancy, force, hydrostatic pressure, pressue, rho|
