Cargo Shit 1. Stability can be considered: -The tendency of the ship to return to an upright position 2. A couple requires: -two equal forces acting on a body in opposite directions and along parallel lines. 3. The couple formed by the center of buoyancy and the center of gravity form: -righting moments 4. A righting arm is: -a distance 5. If KG is less than KM, the ship is considered to have: -stable equilibrium 6. Calculate the moment created by couple with a force of 5 tons, which has an arm of 2.5 feet. - 12.5 foot-tons 7. If the ship has a quick, hard roll, the ship’s stability is: - large GM 8. If a vessel has a displacement of 15,000 tons and a righting arm of 2 feet, what is the vessels righting moment if the ship has a GM of 3 feet? - 30,000 foot-tons 9. KB + BM = KM (height of meticenter) 10. GG’ is used to solve for: - the movement of G when a weight is shifted aboard a vessel - the movement of G when a weight is loaded aboard a vessel - the movement of G when a weight is discharged aboard a vessel
