Stability – I : Chapter 7

  1. A ship of displacement 2000t and KG 4.2m, loads 300t 0f cargo (KG 2.0m ), 200t of cargo (KG 3.2m) and 500t of bunkers ( KG 0m ). Find her final KG.
Ship’s weight
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
