Can a battleship fire all its big guns at once and does the ship move sideways when they are fired?
Yes, a battleship could fire all the big guns in a broadside and
yes this would push the sip sideways in the water. Michael
Well, yes and no. It would depend on the acting forces on the
ship, whether it was moving, how fast, what the force of the flow
of the sea was. Because it is possible that the sea would be
flowing strong enough in one direction that even the force of the
cannons would not move the ship against the ocean current. Apollo
