The anchor prevents a ship from drifting away due to the water currents or tide. A popular misconception is that the anchor itself acts as the main weight to "secure" the ship in its position. On an anchoring run, the ship would lay the anchor together with a length of its iron cables on the seabed.… The length to be released would depend on factors such as the depth of the water etc. So it is not the weight of the anchor, but the weight of the huge iron cables connected to the anchor that "secures" the ship. The anchor's weight does play a role, but it is mainly used to grip or hook the iron cables to the seabed. A ship properly anchored would be held to a circular area, the radius defined by the length of the cable released. Also, occasionally, with strong currents, the ship could "drag anchor."

Jacques Yves Cousteau was a former French Naval Officer and popular Oceanographer. He was of the Catholic religion. His funeral mass was celebrated in a Paris Cathedral. Let us not get religious beyond that!
it is determined by the length of the shackle passed into water,in addition to the length from the for'd perpendicular to the bridge.sum of these two are known as the swinging circle of the ship.it is radius at which the ship rotates with anchor as the centre.the radius will not exceed the sum of th…e lengths.it is important to check time to time whether the anchor is dragging or not.swinging circle should be closely watched when the ship's are nearby.swinging circle can be reduced by standing moor.

When a boat/ship/vessel wants to remain at the same spot, it either moors or anchors. Mooring involves attaching the boat to a buoy, which is itself attached to the ground, usually by a chain. Anchoring involves dropping an anchor carried aboard the vessel until it hits the ground and (hopefully) di…gs part of itself into the sand, or mud. The anchor is attached to the vessel by a chain or rope (often called a CABLE).. In either case, the vessel is secured by a single thread to the ground and can move around as the tide and wind affect it.. Thus it SWINGS to anchor.. If we imagine a situation in which there is no wind, only tide, then every six hours (or thereabouts) the tide will reverse its direction and the vessel will turn through 180 degrees. Often the tide will have changed direction during each of the six hours (6:13 to be precise, but even that varies) and the direction in which the vessel is pointing will be constantly changing with the tidal movements. With wind, it just gets more complicated! The vessel is constantly SWINGING. ( Full Answer )
An anchor is a large heavy object, often shaped like a hook, which is attached to a ship by a chain and/or a rope. It can easily be detached from the ship, and most ships have more than one.. To have at least one is essential.
when you dock a ship you use a rope to tie the ship so it stays put, but out at sea you cant tie anywhere so that's why the ancor was invented, amagine waking up at gilligans island Many large ships use swivel-direction propellers to remain in one place. A ship can also be moored to a dock which …requires no anchor. An anchor is used if there is no dock, the water is shallow enough for the anchor's chain to touch bottom, and there is something for the anchor to grab on the bottom. ( Full Answer )

the force of attraction b/w two ships is more than the frictional force b/w ship and the water.If we don't anchor the ship it will collide with other ship with a force equal to the force Gm 1 m 2 /d 2.As a result of collision both ships will destroy due to a very high force of attrection.

An anchor is located on the ship so that when the ship wants to dock it can stay in a certain place. The anchor is heavy enough to stop the ship from moving. If there are no anchors then ant ship will easily drift away. . -----. depends on the type of ship. Most vessels have an anchor at the bow, …this allows the vessel to face the oncoming waves when at anchor. Some vessels also have a stern anchor for use in some mooring situations where the vessel swinging would be a problem. Some working vessels may have multiple anchors and positioning systems to keep them in one spot for drilling, use of ROV's, diving apparatus, etc. . Most anchors depend on flukes, "arms of the anchor" digging into the bottom as well as dead weight to keep the vessel from moving... ( Full Answer )
