  1. Hello, I'm currently studying engineering science, more specifically how volume, density and pressures effect one another. iv been working this question for a while now and hit a bit of a wall. it could be the way the questions written but i cant seem to finish it. All help is greatly appreciated. here it is: A ship is in dry dock in Portsmouth and water is allowed in until it floats. The volume of the water is measured and found to be . The dry dock is 84m long and 19m wide. When the ship is floating the depth of water is 6m. Calculate the displacement mass and the volume of the ship. The density of the water is . If the ship were to sail up the Rhine to Cologne where the density of water is only what will be the new displacement of the ship?
