A 1.47 x 10^6 kg steel hull has a base that is 2.5 x 10^3 m^2 in area. If it is placed in sea water (density= 1025 kg/m^3), how deep does the hull sink?

• AP PHYSICS HELP -

if the hull sinks x meters, it displaces 2500x m^3 of water.

1m^3 of water weighs 1000kg so

2500*x*1025 = 1.47*10^6
x = 0.573m

Thanx!!!!

One more please, I cant figure out the equations. Boats generally have a hard time traveling faster than their hull speed, which is thespeed of a water wave that has the same wavelength as the boat length?
