Two canoe design layouts (as shown in the figures) have been received so far. These designs are similar in shape but with different dimensions. Assume either canoe weighs 120 pounds and the total weight of the paddlers and gear is 630 pounds. Design Diagram A Design Diagram B Question Based on a simple buoyancy analysis, determine if the designs will float or sink by calculating the submerged waterline. Approach For a simple analysis, use a single concentrated load instead of distributed load. Assume a water density of 1.94 slugs/ft3.
