Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean. Also known as the unsinkable ship and the world’s biggest man-made object, Titanic was 882 feet and 9 inches long. It took $7.5 to build Titanic, which estimated to $400 million a day. She was built by an Irish shipbuilder William Pirrie and built in Belfast and was the world's fastest ship. If you want to go underwater and see Titanic, it is 350 miles off of the southeast coast of Newfoundland. Due to the absence of lifeboats and emergency procedures, over 1,500 passengers went down when the vessel sank or froze to death in the North Atlantic Ocean. White Starlineis the company that built Titanic. To build her, it took 3,000 men and two years.
There wasn't a single reason for the sinking of Titanic. For example, the placing of the rivets may have been the reason for the sinking of Titanic. Another example could be the bad weather that was going on the time. The Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico were in the middle of a hot summer and this would've created an intense Gulf Stream. Lastly, Titanic was going at a speed of n22.5 knots while traveling through the waters infested with iceberg. This speed was .5 knots away from her maximum speed capability.
