    Assuming you are in fresh water (density = 1000 kg/ m^3)

    Upthrust = weight of liquid displaced

    Mass of water displaced = mass of boat = 189.86 kg

    Density = mass /volume

    Volume = mass /density = 189.96 / 1000 = 0.18986 m^3

    The second part is quite straightforward:

    The upthrust is equal to mass of boat, since it floats!

    So, Buoyant force = mg = 189.86 x 9.81 = 1862.5N

    that's in simple terms a wager. a million liter of water weighs a million.000028 kg. perhaps, you divide the 189.86 via a million.000028 to discover sort of liters(quantity). perhaps you do not desire the size, in simple terms the load. help!!! the place is Einstein whilst we desire him?
