PART 1
Raft made of 2.2m long pine logs with Average diameter of logs 26cm.How many logs are needed to strap together to build raft to hold max 4 people?
Density of log = 600 kg/m^3
Each people weights 512N

PART 2
What percent of the logs is under water when you are on your raft in the water with your friend?

asked by kely
  1. find volume of each log.
    Now, the bouyancy must equal the weight of logs + people.
    Bouyancy=masslogs+masspeople
    let n be number of logs.
    let volume V of logs=2PI*.13^2
    n*V*densitywater=n*V*densitylog+ 4*512

    nV(densitywater-densitylog)=4*512
    solve for n. If it is decimal number, round UP.
