Question

The bottom of a steel boat is a 5.5 m by 10.3 m by 1.4 cm piece of steel (ρ steel = 7900 kg/m^3). The sides are made of 0.50cm -thick steel. What minimum height must the sides have for this boat to float in perfectly calm water?

Answer #1

The bottom of a steel "boat" is a 8 m ? 18 m ? 2 cm piece of
steel (?steel = 7900 kg/m3). The
sides are made of 1.60 cm thick steel. What minimum height must the
sides have for this boat to float in perfectly calm water?
____ cm

The bottom of a steel "boat" is a 4 m ✕ 18 m ✕ 2 cm piece of
steel (ρsteel = 7900 kg/m3). The sides are made of 2.00 cm thick
steel. What minimum height must the sides have for this boat to
float in perfectly calm water? (Answer is not 22.6 cm)

You place a sphere of radius R=1.54 m and of density ρ =
0.75g/cm^3 in a pool of clean water. The sphere begins to float and
a portion of the sphere begins to show. What is the height of the
portion that shows above the water? What minimum force should you
press on the sphere to make it sink completely in the pool? Show
your complete work step by step.

A piece of wood is 0.610 m long, 0.230 m wide, and
9.00×10-2 m thick.
A) Its density is 600 kg/m3kg/m3 . What volume of lead must be
fastened underneath it to sink the wood in calm water so that its
top is just even with the water level?
B) What is the mass of this volume of lead?

A steel hot-water tank of cylindrical shape has an inside
diameter of 0.600 m and inside height of 1.40 m. The tank is
enclosed by a 5.00 cm thick insulating layer of glass wool whose
thermal conductivity is 0.0350 W / (m·K). The insulation is covered
by a thin sheet metal skin. The steel tank and the sheet metal skin
have thermal conductivities that are much greater than that of the
glass wool. How much electrical power (W) must be...

A block of wood, with density 780.0 kg/m^3, has a cubic shape
with sides 0.272 m long. A cord of negligible mass is used to tie a
piece of lead to the bottom of the wood. The lead pulls the wood
into the water until it is just completely covered with water. What
is the mass of the lead? Density of water is 1.00 × 103 kg/m^3 and
density of lead is 11.3 × 103 kg/m^3.

Water is poured into a cylindrical container that has a leak at
the bottom, where h = 15.0 cm and r = 2.50 cm. The mass m of the
water is given as a function of time ?(?) = 2.70? ^2 − 0.120? ^3 ,
where m is in grams, t in seconds, and 0 ≤ ? ≤ 22.5. (a) What is
that greatest mass in kg? (b) What is the height y (in meters) of
the water when the...

A 1 m outer diameter spherical tank made of AISI 304 steel with
10 cm wall
thickness contains solid iced water at 0°C. Air at 25°C flows
outside the tank with a
velocity of 1 m/s. Determine the rate of heat transfer to the tank
and the mass rate (
m_dot) at which ice melts. Ignore convection effects of the melting
ice.
The latent heat of fusion of water at 0°C is 333.7 kJ/kg.
Thanks!

2. On a boat trip with friends, you are given the
responsibility to make sure the boat doesn’t sink due to
overloading. Your boat is rectangular in shape, with dimensions x =
1.0 m, y = 2.0 m, z = 0.50 m and
a mass 45 kg. The density of water is 1, 000 kg/m3. Being the good
engineer you are, you decide to
test the boat’s loading capacity in a backyard swimming pool before
the trip. The boat’s manufacturer...

A person drops a cylindrical steel bar (?=1.20×1011
Pa)(Y=1.20×1011 Pa) from a height of 2.202.20 m (distance between
the floor and the bottom of the vertically oriented bar). The bar,
of length ?=0.75L=0.75 m, radius ?=0.70R=0.70 cm, and mass
?=1.20m=1.20 kg, hits the floor and bounces up, maintaining its
vertical orientation. Assuming the collision with the floor is
elastic, and that no rotation occurs, what is the maximum
compression of the bar?
