Problem *3.108 [Difficulty: 3] H = 8 ft h = 7 ft θ = 60 o Floating Sinking Given: Data on boat Find: Effective density of water/air bubble mix if boat sinks Solution: Basic equations F B ρ g V = and Σ F y 0 = We can apply the sum of forces for the "floating" free body Σ F y 0 = F B W = where F B SG sea ρ g V subfloat = V subfloat 1 2 h 2h tan θ L = Lh 2 tan θ () = SG sea 1.024 = (Table A.2) Hence W SG sea ρ g L h 2 tan θ () = (1) We can apply the sum of forces for the "sinking" free body Σ F y 0 = F B W = where F B SG mix ρ g V sub = V subsink 1 2 H 2H tan θ
