    1. The bottom of a steel "boat" is a 4.00 m x 10.0 m x 4.00 cm piece of steel (rho=7900). The sides are made of 0.490 cm-thick steel.


    2. Relevant equations

    Fbouy = Wobj

    I assume he wants to find how deep the boat will lie in the water..
    (But it might be he is interested in finding out how much water he needs to keep his pot plants alive..)
