 Homework Statement:
 "A wooden raft, with dimensions 6.10m x 3.05m x 0.305m, mass 2837.5 kg and density 500 kg/m3, is used to cross a river of density 1000kg/m3. It is used to carry 40 people, each of average mass 70 kg. Will the raft be able to carry all the people across the river? Explain mathematically."
 Relevant Equations:

Density, rho = mass(m)/volume(v)
F(buoyant) = V(submerged) x rho(fluid) x g
