What does a stable ship have to do with math?Vessel stability is a critical topic for marine engineers. They need to use mathematics and science principles to ensure that a ship is stable and safe for crew, passengers and cargo. You can imagine stability by thinking about standing up in a canoe or kayak and the feeling of being unbalanced and like you may fall in the water. Once you are sitting in the canoe or kayak you likely will feel more stable. This video explores the math and science of ship stability.
