Homework Help: Engineering Science and Drag calculations for a simple dinghy

  1. Dec 3, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have to compile a report for a project on the science behind a boat. Its a really open ended aissignement, I have no ideas where to start or what equations to use.

    I need the boat to go 20mph and therefore calculate what engine power I will need to make it reach that speed.

    In addition I need to do some buoyancy calculations.

    I'm sorry if this seems vauge but its all i have.

    Any Help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
