I have a bolt (13 kg) of stainless steel (1650 cm``). How much will this weight in sea water?
Thank you in advance!
Thank you in advance!
Does one mean 13 (13.000) kg, or perhaps 13,000 g? kg (g) is a unit of mass, N (Newton) or dyne (used in cgs system) is a measure of weight. Mass * acceleration of gravity would give weight (force) due to gravity.Thanks a lot for your respond Born2bwire!
This means that my calculation will become something like this:
Weight in Air: 13,000 kg
- Weight of fluid displaced (1650 cm3*1,025): 1,691 kg
= Weight in Sea Water: 11,309 kg
Correct?
He doesn't like your use of kilograms as a unit of weight. Technically, kilogram is a unit of mass, Newtons would be an appropriate unit of weight.Thanks Astronuc!
However I got a little confused. By 13,000kg I meant 13 kg (in air). And my following answer was that this bolt would weight 11,3kg in water. Do you agree or disagree with this calculation?
As Born2bwire indicated, I was referring to the use of mass as weight. Being a physics forum, we wish to be accurate in such a matter.Thanks Astronuc!
