guys, how the FUCK does this thing float? i dont really understand how beyonce works to begin with, but this thing just looks to heavy am i right?
>>
I'll be honest, I don't fully understand how beyonce works either.

It displaces a volume of water equal to it's weight, that load is actually hollow so it can float on it's own too.
>>
An object that sinks displaces an amount of fluid equal to the object's volume. Thus buoyancy is expressed through Archimedes' principle, which states that the weight of the object is reduced by its volume multiplied by the density of the fluid. If the weight of the object is less than this displaced quantity, the object floats; if more, it sinks. The amount of fluid displaced is directly related (via Archimedes' Principle) to its weight.

more than beyonce, probably

This is an heavy ship, for sure.

you're a big ship

This i think hides the valuable insight of bouyancy. That is, things are are less dense than the medium they're in experience a force against gravity (see pic). So what you're getting is the net density of the mass below the water level is less than 1 g/ml. Ships are shaped so that despite all that heavy steel, it's mostly air (density 1 kg/m^3).

No one really does.

Common misconception OP, that thing doesn't float, it actually hovers above the water to reduce drag.

The sphere contains an antigravity core.

it's not a sphere, it's a giant marshmallow, cf the pic's name.

anyway, this big ship is a nice boat.
>>
>>6668161
Here's some layman's terms. You get that as you go deeper the pressure rises, right? Therefore, there's more more pressure on the area of the bottom of the ship than at the surface, hence more force, so it is pushed up. It settles at the point where this buoyant force is equal to the force of gravity on the ship.
>>
>>6668161
Everything that's been said above and the simple fact that the platform is a lot lighter than you imagine it is. If it was anything like a solid volume it would break the back of the ship like a twig.
>>
>>6668161

I think the real question here is how much do the marshmallows weigh.

fucking beyonce, whot does it work

sci I thought you were better than this.


Also, in general, what kind of engineer designs vessels such as this?

Civil engineers turned Naval architects?

omagad, so many big boats

so what does one have to do to produce beyonce?

lot's of marshmallow

I'd say mech engineers. Civil engineers work on roads, pavements, and other stuff.
