Can You Survive The Titanic?
Transcript of Can You Survive The Titanic?
Tip of the Iceberg
The sinking of the Titanic is a tragic story. It happens to be known by almost everyone alive. Many people survived, but most passengers fell in the water or sank with the Titanic. It so happens that you are going to get all the information I know about the Titanic.
When the Titanic sank, it was 400 miles away from nearest land. The Titanic was 58 miles away from the next rescue point. The rescue point was the nearest ship, the California. The California had their radios off, so they were not able to hear about the Titanic sinking and helped rescue people. the next nearest ship was the Carpathia. The Carpathia was 58 miles away, but was still able to rescue people and take to safety. When the Titanic was going into iceberg area, there were 6 iceberg warnings that the captain and crew ignored. The captain and crew left the binoculars at the dock and if he had brought them, the engineer would have seen the iceberg and steered away in time to not hit it. The water was 28% F(-2%c). There were 1,500 people that went down with the Titanic.
It took about 3 years to build the Titanic. There were 3,000 workers that helped to build the Titanic. To hold the Titanic together, the workers used 3,000,000 rivets in the Titanic hull.A rivet is a bolt that the builders used on the Titanic. The Titanic was 882' 9" feet long and 92' feet wide. On board there were 75,000 pounds of fresh meat boarded onto the Titanic. There were 16,850 bottles of wine and liquor. There were 101,000 pieces of fruit. Also there were 130,000 pounds of pots and cookware. The Titanic rudder weighed 15 tons. The speed of the Titanic was 22.5 knots.
The Titanic was steered away from the iceberg, but the iceberg still scraped the side of the ship. It left a huge gap in the side of the Titanic. It let in a bunch of water. Since there was so much water let in, the bow of the Titanic started to go under water, called listing. The stern of the Titanic lifted up into the air. Just then, the Titanic snapped right into half. Once it did that, it started to go completely under. The captain of the ship stayed on and went under with the ship. The designer of the ship also stayed on the ship when it went under.
How I Would Have Survived the Sinking Of The Titanic
If I were on the Titanic, I would have done some things differently than other people. I would enjoy my time on the Titanic, not worrying about it sinking. If an iceberg hit the Titanic, I would immediately run where I am and jump into the life boat to save myself. I would scream for my mom and step-mom and when they are near, I would tell her to come to me and then both of them and I would be on the lifeboat. Before our life boat got put in the water, I would tell my step-dad and dad to put on women's clothes and act like they are woman so they can get on to a life boat to be saved. When we got to the Carpathia, we would stick together and never leave each others sight again.http://www.teachertube.com/viewVideo.php?video_id=137238
How I Would Have Saved The Titanic
If I was in charge of the ship, I would have done some things very diffrently than the builders of the Titanic.
1. I would have not forgoten the bionoculars
2. I would have orderd to make the bulkheads bigger.
3. I would have made the rivets (BOLTS) stronger so it could hold the Titanics hull together better.
4.I would have been driving the Titanic better.
5. I would not trust anybody else to do my job.
6.I would have had more life boats and i would order bigger ones .
