A cargo ship is loaded in sea water to maximum capacity. What will happen if this ship is moved to river water? Give a reason for your answer.

Answer:
Density of river water is lower than the sea water.
If cargo ship loaded in sea water to maximum capacity, is moved to river water, it sinks deeper because river water is less dense than sea water. Hence more volume of river water is required to be displaced to balance its weight along with its cargo.
