1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The bottom of a steel "boat" is a 7.00 m x 8.00 m x 5.00 cm piece of steel (rho-steel=7900 kg/m^3.) The sides are made of 0.540 cm-thick steel. What minimum height must the sides have for this boat to float in perfectly calm water 3. The attempt at a solution I figured the water displaced must equal the weight of the boat. Then the volume of that water displaced will equal the volume of the boat. But for whatever reason I am still not getting the correct answer. Any thoughts?
