What effect does pocketing have on stability?
This chapter has introduced you to the terminology
Improves righting arms
used for ship stability; the laws of physics and
trigonometry used to determine stability and buoyancy
of a ship; and the effects of buoyancy, gravity, and
Improves righting moments
weight shifts on ship stability. Other aspects involved
Which of the following effects does NOT
in the study of stability are taken into consideration
when an inclining experiment is being conducted,
alter the stability characteristics of a ship
when the ship is being dry docked, or when a
when you have loose water?
grounding has occurred.
Aboard certain ships you may qualify as ballasting
officer and be actively involved in maintaining
stability. Remember that additional information on this
topic may be found in the following publications:
