A supertanker filled with oil has a total mass of 1.09 109 kg. If the dimensions of the ship are those of a rectangular box 260 m long, 78 m wide, and 78 m high, determine how far the bottom of the ship is below sea level (ρsea = 1020 kg/m3).

  • physics - ,

    the volume submerged is 260x78xh

    That volume of water must weigh 1.07e9 kg to balance the weight.

    1020 kg/m³ x 230x72xh m³ = 1.09e9 kg
    solve for h
