(Note that there is no need to calculate the moment in absolute terms) The longitudinal second moment of area about amidships = 2/3 X 14.1 X 14.1 X 14.1 X 1896

= 3543000 m4

The minimum longitudinal second moment will be about the cen-troid of area and given by:

The transverse second moment = 2/3 X 1/3 X 14.1 X 52 423

= 164300 m4

Other Simpson's rules

Other rules can be deduced for figures defined by unevenly spaced ordinates or by different numbers of evenly spaced ordinates. The rule for four evenly spaced ordinates becomes:

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
