# Stability – I : Chapter 7

###### VM
2000t (load) 4.2m 3400 tm
300t (load) 2.0m (+) 600 tm
200t   (load) 3.2m (+) 640 tm
500t  (load ) 1.0 m (+)500 tm

Final W   = 300t                                                           Final VM = 10140 tm

We know that:-

Final KG =   (Final VM) / (Final W)
Final KG    = 10140 / 3000
= 3.38m

###### Solution:
 Ship’s weight KG VM 3000 t 3.9m 11700tm 200t (load) 3.0m (+) 600tm 300t 6.4m (+) 1920tm 150t 5.2m (+) 780tm 350t 4m (+)1400tm

Final W   = 4000 t                                                       Final VM = 16400 tm

We know that:-

Final KG =   (Final VM) / (Final W)
Final KG = (16400/4000)
= 4.1m
