    Hope you don't mind this question, as we have very similar questions popping out quite often (and quite often from students from philippines): what books do you use over there during your studies, and don't they contain chapters about ship stability?

    answers may vary on the formula, like what is written in the thesis using as reference. he uses 2 diff. formulas and got 2 diff. answers, then he average the answers to get mo accuracy.

    that's what our prof required us, to find at least to diff. formulas then average it.

    i can't just copy what exactly is written in the thesis, that's why i'm hoping i can find some other formulas. thanks for the help
