You know this can be calculated, all you need to do is add the total displacement weight of all the ships and boats in the world (start with mine at 1/2 tonne or just under 1/2 a cubic meter of water taking the SG of saltwater into the equation) and go from there then you need to calculate the area of the seas and oceans then divide the displacement volume up to spread over that area, for the sake of ease we will assume all land is surrounded by cliffs so land angles don't come into account, could get a bit complicated if we didn't do that .
The sea level would drop, but only very minutely.
Would you also remove all the shipwrecks on the bottom of the seas? Would have to calculate them in as well. (which would be virtually impossible, even if it was known how many shipwrecks there are).
When you consider the average depth of the ocean is ~3.8km and it consumes around around 70% of the surface of the Earth (from memory) it's hard to see the water level dropping by more than a few hundredths of a millimeter.
How do you feel about the idea of having a compulsory tracking app on your phone to help in the fight against the coronavirus?
Me, the idea has some merit, I won’t be putting it on mine or my wife’s phone. I’m too old to do anything illegal these days and it would be an invasion of my remaining...
Had a look around and didn't see a thread on this so I thought I might start one for general knowledge and a bit of fun. If there is one already, MODS, please delete this thread.
Guess where this is and if informed correct by the OP, then post up a place that you have been to and see if the...
I thought there was a column on this,but not looking in the right place obviously.
Moskva -by Jack Grimwood, a very good espionage story linking Stalins Russia to the present with some twists we have come to accept from Russia.
The Long Shot -by Stephen Leather,another very good read,is...
What book/s have you read recently and enjoyed and would recommend.
I've had this on the shelf for a while and knocked it over on the break. I am an Aggassi fan and this gives an interesting insight into the human side of the athlete. Really enjoyed the read. :cool:
