A raft is 4.2 m wide and 6.5 m long and it floats on water (density of water = 1000 kg/m3). When a horse is loaded onto the raft, it sinks an additional 0.027 m deeper into the water. What is the weight of the horse (in N)?

  1. mass of horse
    = mass of water displaced (Archimedes principle)
    = 0.027*4.2*6.5 m^3 * 1000 kg/m^3
    = 737.1 kg

    Weight of horse
    = mg
    = 737.1 * 9.81 N
    = 7230 N
