the problem was written below…need help!?

a passenger vessel about 150 m long has 10000 tons deadweight. its maximum allowable number of passengers and crew is 700. as it sails out to sea, its cargo and supplies comprise 50% of its allowable load. later the ship’s officers decide to accomodate more passengers until the total number of crew and passengers aboard the vessel reaches 4000.
a) calculate the buoyant force of on the total cargo and passengers. assume an average mass of 5 kg for each passenger. density of sea water is 1025 kg/m^3 and g=9.8 N/kg.

b) the vessel sank when it collided with a freighter at sea. can the vessel owners be held liable for overloading?
