    Even after you see it, it is still hard to believe! Water Bridge in Germany . What a feat!

    Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters long.......now this is engineering!

    This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West Germany , as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Magdeburg , near Berlin. The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.

    To those who appreciate engineering projects, here's a puzzle for you armchair engineers and physicists. Did that bridge have to be designed to withstand the additional weight of ship and barge traffic, or just the weight of the water?

    Answer: It only needs to be designed to withstand the weight of the water!

    Why? A ship always displaces an amount of water that weighs the same as the ship, regardless of how heavily a ship may be loaded.

    Ni challange kidogo, picha ni nzuri sija kuelewa kidogo, inaoneka bridge ina float juu ya maji, hivyo water is withstanding the weight of the floating bridge, it is still a puzzle to me,I still remember my law of floatation that in order an object to flaot on any kind of fluid has to be denser than the fluid itself.Anyway there might amendments on the Law of floatation and archmedes principles which facilitated the design of the floating bridge.
    Changieni jamani
