1. Homework Statement
is it necessary to find the meta center for this question ? the formula of meta center is I /Vd , the I ( moemtn of inertia ) for rectangle is (ab^3) / 12 , but what is a ? what is b ? i'm confused now
2. Homework Equations
3. The Attempt at a Solution
ρ gVsubmerged = weight(579N)
1025(9.81)Vsubmerged = weight(579N)
Vsubmerged = 0.058m^3
0.058m^3 = (1.2x0.9x hsubmerged)
hsubmerged =0.054m
center of buoyancy = 0.054/2 = 0.027m
metacenter = I / Vd = [(ab^3) / 12 ] /Vd
