Here is the exact test we took last time (you can thank Becca) Disclaimer: No responsibility will be taken by those involved in bringing you this pony for the grades you earn. 1. Stability can be considered – the tendency for the ship to return to an upright position 2. A couple requires – 2 equal forces acting on a body in opposite direction and along parallel lines. 3. The couple formed by the center of buoyancy and the center of gravity form – righting moments 4. Righting arm is – a distance 5. If KG is less than KM the ship would be considered to have – stable equilibrium 6. Calculate the moment created by a couple with a force of 5 tons which has an arm of 2.5 ft. = 12.5 ft/tons 7. A ship has a quick hard roll. Ships stability is – large GM 8. If a vessel has a displacement of 15000 tons and a righting arm of 2 ft, what is the vessels righting moment if the ship has a GM of 3 ft. = 30000 9. KB + BM = height of metacenter 10.
