Suppose one of the navy ships bobs up to float 11cm higher in the water when 50 fighters take off from it in 25 minutes, at a location where g=9.78m/s^2. Bristling with bombs and missiles, the planes have average mass 29000kg. Find the horizontal area enclosed by the waterline of the 4 billion dollar ship. By comparison, its flight deck has area 18000m^2. Below the decks are passageways hundreds of meters long, so narrow that two large men cannot pass each other.
