A bridge in Sweden carries the Gota Canal over a highway. What, if anything happens to the load on the bridge when a boat passes across it in the canal?

    it increases slightly, due to the water height increasing slightly.

  • Physical Science - ,

    Ignoring waves and pressure variations due to velocity, nothing at all. The weight of the boat displaces an equal weight of water.

  • Physical Science - ,

    The water level does not go up, steady state. It is a canal, not a closed basin.

  • Physical Science - ,

    OK, I agree with Prof Damon, if it is an open canal, water level is constant.
