Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at 10:17pm.

Suppose you are drifting on a lake in a boat that measures 1 m high, 1 m wide, and 3 m long. The water level reaches halfway up the boat.

1. What is the volume of water that is displaced by the boat? (density of water = 1000 kg/m^3 or 1.00 g/cm^3).

2. What is the mass of the water displaced?

3. If the liquid were different than water, would your answers change? If so, which ones and how? What information would you need to know about the fluid?
Wouldn't this just be yes because the density of the liquid would be different from water? Oil would be an example, which is less dense than water?
