I am studying with the Master/Mate 500-1600 gross ton from Hawsepipe.net, There are alot of stability and other questions I can not find the formula for. Can anybody help me with this one?
Your ship has loaded 22,000 barrels of crude oil, departing Valdez, Alaska for Panama. When loaded the cargo the temperature was 90deg F. API was 15 deg. The volume correction factoris .0004. If the cargotemperature is expected to be 100deg F at the discharge port, how many barrels will be offloaded?
Also what does API stand for?
Thank you. I have got to test before Dec so I am trying to cram a bunch
