If your boat weighs 1100 N, how much water will it displace when it’s floating motionless at the surface of a lake?
the principle of Archimedes states: a floating object displaces the amount of liquid that equals its weight. The amount of lake water displaced therefore weighs 1200 N and its mass = (1200/9.81) kg which is also the same as the boat's mass.
= .1325 m^3N/9.8 GF
