What is the bulge below the waterline of an ocean liner called and what is its use?

Answer . From the "Bulbous Bow" entry in Wikipedia: . A bulbous bow , a feature of many modern ship hulls, is a protruding bulb at the bow (or front) below the waterline. Usually visible only when a ship is in drydock, the bulb modifies how water flows around the hull, reducing drag and increasing in speed, range, and fuel efficiency. Ships with bulbous bows generally have 12 to 15 percent better fuel efficiency than similar vessels without them.. Bulbous bows achieve maximum effect at a narrow range of speeds over 6 knots (Bray, website). At other speeds, they can increase drag. They have the greatest effect on large ships such as freighters, navy vessels and various passenger ships. They are rarer on recreational boats designed for wide speed ranges and planing over the water..

How long does it take to cross the Atlantic in an ocean liner?

Cunard's Queen Mary 2 (QM2) has transatlantic crossings from New York to Southampton from April until October; the QE2 will also make a few crossings in April. The voyages are for 6 days -- but, the ship departs from New York (or Southampton) at 5 pm, so technically, the crossing takes only 5 days, but passengers are on the ship for 6 days. Two New Zealand rowers, Rob Hamil and Phil Stubbs, crossed 2950nm of the Atlantic between Tenerife, Canary Islands and Barbados in 1997 in 41 days.

What ocean liner was recommissioned for the military?

There have been at least two. The Queen Mary served as a troopship in World War 2, and the Queen Elizabeth II ( and the Canberra ) was refitted as a troopship in the Falklands War.

What is the fastest ocean liner?

The fastest ocean liner was the "SS United States." Its top speedis 44.7 knots (51.44 miles per hour). It is currently rusting awayin the Delaware River near Philadelphia. It has not been in servicein many, many years.

Where can you hear MUSIC on an ocean liner?

Joke and Riddle answer: for the c-28 worksheet- the tape deck On the serious side: Most ocean liners play piped music intheir public areas (in bars, lifts, restaurants etc.), though it'slikely to be fairly schmaltzy 'muzak' that might not appeal to you.They may also have jukeboxes in some of their bars or dance halls(depending on the cruise line and the type of liner it is). Livemusical entertainment is usually provided on most liners in theevening, at set times, in the concert hall or a large bar (andsometimes outside on the sundeck in warm climates)- you will needto check with your booking agent or the shipping line for a concertor gig programme though, so's you can select in advance whatartists or bands you best would like to see. Also, the majority ofmodern liners in the Western or developed world nowadays havesatellite TV and internet facilities, if not in your private cabinthen in nearby lobbies or lounges. From these, you should be ableto access satellite TV music channels, music-based internetpodcasts, or MP3 downloads. Big cruise ships also usually have alibrary, that may have a music section from which you can borrowCDs or even old-style cassettes- though again, it's best to checkbeforehand whether such facilities exist before you travel.

What is the worlds largest ocean liner?

Queen Mary 2, Length: 1,132 feet, Approximately 151,400 grosstonnes, is the largest ocean liner in the world. The Allure of theSeas, owned by Royal Caribbean International, is the largest cruiseship, at 1,182 feet and 225,282 gross tonnes. The distinctionbetween Ocean Liner and Cruise Ship is primarily based on the shapeof the hull. Ocean Liners, such as the QM2, have a hull speciallybuilt for cutting through the waves of the ocean. While CruiseShips do make trans-oceanic trips, they are not designed for thatpurpose.

How much does a ocean liner weigh?

Since each ship is different, they all have different weights. A few are what is known as sister ships, such as the RCL Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas, meaning they are pretty much built from the same plans. Thus you will generally find sister ships being advertised as having the same weight. For those two, the weight is 210,000 Gross Registered Tons.

What floats ocean liners?

An ocean liner takes advantage of its average density, the density of both the steel frame and all the air filling the empty spaces, to float on the water. The steel's density is greater than the water, but the empty spaces full of trapped air weigh less and help the liner stay afloat. While gravity is pushing the liner down into the water, the Buoyant force , or the pressure from the ocean, is pushing it up at the same time

What has more kinetic energy a 0.0018-kg bullet traveling at 402 ms or a 6.8 107-kg ocean liner traveling at 10 ms 19 knots?

For an object of mass m (measured in kilograms, kg) travelling at a speed v (measured in metres per second, m s -1 ), assuming that v is well below the speed of light, the kinetic energy E (measured in joules, J) is given by: E = 1 / 2 m v 2 So for the bullet, m = 0.0018 kg, and v = 402 m s -1 : E = 1 / 2 x 0.0018 kg x (402 m s -1 ) 2 = 145.4436 J For the ocean liner, assuming m = 6.8 x 10 7 kg (68 000 000 kg), and v = 10 m s -1 : E = 1 / 2 x 68 000 000 kg x (10 m s -1 ) 2 = 3 400 000 000 J So the bullet has a kinetic energy of around 145 joules, and the ocean liner has a kinetic energy of 3.4 billion joules. To answer the question, the ocean liner has more kinetic energy than the bullet.

When was the Ocean Liner invented?

Arguably in 1838 with the christening of the Great Western, a vessel that had the first vague bits of the style, architecture and system (voyage-wise among other things) of the ocean liner.

Which is bigger a cruise ship or an ocean liner?

It depends. Currently, the Queen Mary 2 is the only Ocean Liner left in the world. So, any ship bigger than that like Oasis of the Seas or Allure of the Seas would prove that only a few cruise ships surpass the size of the one Ocean Liner left in the world.

How can a huge ocean liner built of steel float while a penny placed in a glass of water sinks?

Buoyancy . In physics, buoyancy is the upward force that keeps things afloat. The net upward buoyancy force is equal to the magnitude of the weight of fluid displaced by the body. This force enables the object to float or at least seem lighter.. In simple words, the hollow ship displaces an amount of water that is heavier than the ship. What puzzles me is how an oil tanker that is "full" of heavy oil will float----now that is a real dilema.. This is what makes hot-air balloons fly and ships float..

What makes an ocean liner go?

Depending on the size of the liner, it can range from Diesel alone, to a combination of Diesel and electricity, and even gas turbines to augment the power generated from the ship's diesels. Rather than long shafts turning fixed point propellers, some liners such as Cunard's Queen Mary II, use 'pods' which can be rotated as required. This provides advance manoeuvring capabilities whilst reducing hull vibration.

What is the difference between ocean liner and cruise ship?

Cruise ships are mainly for get aways and touring the ocean. Ocean liners are large, longer ships that carry people across the ocean as a means of transport from one port to another. (Ex. Titanic was an ocean liner because it's purpose was the Trans-Atlantic route, which is the route from UK to US and back. People who don't know what they are talking about say Titanic was a cruise ship which is entirely false.

I'm looking for an ocean liner that left Liverpool England for quebec canada in October of 1915?

You can try either the British National Archives or Archives Canada. Both have records of ships sailed to and from ports. It was war time, so if you know it was a passenger ship, it should be easy to narrow it down. If it was a Navy ship, it might be a little harder. It's sometimes easier to narrow down if you have the name of a passenger. Typing their name into either of the archives will often produce the name of the hsip they sailed on.

How do you get a pool liner?

You will need the dimensions of the pool. There are companies on the web who sell them. Just google pool liners. No seriously, judging from your question, do not attempt to do it yourself, leave it to a professional. It is too easy to buy a liner and then destroy it by not installing it properly. This task takes a lot of experience. Go to your local pool store and ask them for a recommendation or talk to your neighbors that have had it done in the past. When you do find someone, ask them to do a complete job of replacing parts and painting or rust protecting. Do not cut corners. If it is done properly, you will not have to worry about it for 25 years. Done poorly, you may have to redo it after 10.

What happened to British ocean liner named lusitania?

The Lucitania was a civilian ship torpedoed by a German U-Boat (submarine) during World War II. The official story from the Allies was that it was an unprovoked attack on a civilian ship. The official story from the Axis side is that the Lucitania was secretly smuggling weapons for the war effort and was therefore a legitimate target. Either way, this incident helped fuel the outrage in the United States against Germany and Italy, and brought the USA closer to participating in the war.
