Exact op Zee
Knowledge of physics and mathematics is indispensable in the treatment of complex maritime topics such as stability, loading or maneuvering. However, standard education in the exact subjects often does not fit in with this maritime practice.
“Exact op Zee, wis- en natuurkunde in de maritieme praktijk” deals at the entry level with the mathematics and physics that is required in maritime education and is in line with the perception of the beginning nautical student. It contains many examples and topics that the seafarer has to deal with such as stability of the ship, voyage preparation, navigation, engine power and efficiency.
The chapters contain basic theoretical material, including formulas, but also explanations with various examples of the application of the various principles and laws in maritime shipping. In addition, the book contains many questions and answers.
