(note: for this analysis assume that it is a very thin walled pipe and that the inside and outside diameter of the pipe is the same). Discuss: a) The largest pipe that will not float when it is empty. Ans: d ≈ 8.7 inch b) Whether an 18” diameter pipe will float when full of water. c) The volume (ft 3 ) of concrete ( γ = 150 lb/ft 3 ) you recommend as a cap on the above 18” diameter pipe to prevent it from floating. Ans: 0.3 ft 3 per foot of pipe Pipe Diameter (in) Pipe Weight (lb/ft) 4 12 6 18 8 24 10 30 12 39 18 66...
