Question 22 Exercise 5C

A loaded cargo ship sails from sea water to river water. State and explain your observation

The observation is as follows:

The cargo ship dips into water as it advances from seawater to river water.

Explanation: The density of sea water is more than that of river water. Consequently, as per the law of floatation, in order to balance the weight of the ship, more volume of water is required for the

river water having lower density to displace it.

"hello everyone welcome to lado learning i am good preet your science tutor today's question is a loaded cargo ship sails from sea water to the river water state and explain your observation so here a situation is given that a loaded cargo ship it sails from sea water to river water so what do you observe so the observation here is the cargo ship will dips into water as it sails from sea water to river water okay the observation is that the ship will dip into the water now what will be the explanation for this observation as the density of sea water is more than the river water consequently from the law of flotation to balance the weight of shape the weight of shape more volume of water is required and river water have lower density lower density to displace the ship that is why when the ship the loaded cargo ship sails from sea water to river water it get dips into the water for more such videos please subscribe leader learning and for any doubts drop a comment thank you"
