What is Hydrostatic Curve?
Hydrostatic Curve is a set of curves which plot the hydrostatic
quantities such as displacement, centre of floatation, centre of buoyancy,
transvers metacentre, etc. against the draught these curves are useful for
1. Define Mechanics
Mechanics is an area of science concerned with the behaviour of physical bodies when
subjected to forces or displacements, and the subsequent effects of the bodies on their
Mechanics is a science concerned with the motion
1. Two perpendicular forces of magnitude F N and 8 B act a point O. Their resultant has magnitude 17
N. Calculate F and find the angle which the resultant makes with the 8N force.
2. A boat has a speed of 8mph in still water attempts to go directly a
4. A 10-kg weight is suspended by a rope from a ceiling. If a horizontal force of 5.80kg is applied to the
weight, the rope will make an angle with the vertical equal to?
5. If O = 30 and T = 6kN, determine the magnitude of the resultant force acting on t
