Create a matlab program
A wood circular cylinder, having a specific gravity, S, of 0.54, floats in water as shown in Figure P4.
For a floating body, the weight of the floating body equals the weight of fluid displaced, thus

S = the specific gravity of the wood.
γw= the specific weight of water.
R = the radius of the cylinder.
L = the cylinder length.
V = the volume of water displaced
The integral was obtained from integral tables. Substituting the limits of integration gives:
Substituting Equation c) into Equation (a) and rearranging terms and dividing by R2 gives:
