and 5.64 m long. When a loaded truck pulls

onto it, the boat sinks an additional 3.25 cm

into the river.

What is the weight of the truck? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .

Answer in units of kN.

**Damon**, Friday, June 17, 2011 at 4:16pmdensity of water = 1000 kg/m^3

if .0325 m = additional depth immersed

buoyancy volume added = 3.33*5.64*.0325

mass of water displaced = 3.33*5.64*32.5 kg

weigh of water displaced = m g

= 3.33*5.64*32.5*9.8 Newtons

= 5981 N

=5.981 kN
