The GRT or gross register tonnes of the Titanic was 46,328. The displacement was 52,310 tonnes. The length of the Titanic was 269.1 m or 882 ft and nine inches. The beam measured 28 m or 92 ft. Her height from her keel to the top of her funnels stood at 53.3 m or 175 ft. The draught was 10.5 m or 34 ft and seven inches. The depth was 19.7 m or 64 ft and six inches. There were nine decks that were lettered from A through to G.

The installed power of the Titanic consisted of:

-        Scotch boilers: 24 double ended (six furnace) plus five single ended (three furnace)
-        Two four cylinder reciprocating triple expansion steam engines that each produced 15000 horse power for the ship's two wing propellers on the outboard at 75 rpm (revolution per minute)
-         A low-pressure turbine that produced 16,000 horse power
-         A sum of 46,000 horse power (design) to 59,000 horse power (maximum)

The propulsion consisted of:

-         Two triple-bladed wing propellers (bronze)
-         One quadruple-bladed centre propeller (bronze)

The speed of the Titanic was:

-         21 knots (24 mph or 39 km/h)
-         23 knots (26 mph or 43 km/h) maximum

The capacity of the Titanic when fully loaded with crew and passengers was 3547. There were 885 crew members. For all these people, there were a mere 20 lifeboats. It was presumed they would not be needed, because this ship was 'unsinkable'.

There were a total of 840 staterooms.

-         416 in First Class
-         162 in Second Class

Others have well-answered this one statistically. A most critical dimension for the passengers was the 75 ft (21m) from the deck to the water, about the height of a 6 story (storey) building. When the call first came to load the lifeboats, women and children first, the sheer height from the davits and the yet-unpracticed lowering of the boats was enough that practically no one dared to take the risks of getting lowered in the tiny lifeboats to the dark sea, preferring instead the lighted familiar firmness of the ship. Therefore, the first boats left 2/3 to over 1/2 empty. Only as it became apparent that people were making the descent safely, and as it became obvious that the great ship was in danger, did the lifeboats go down full.

From general knowledge, I do not know exactly how big the Titanic was, but I do know that it was slightly bigger than the WWII Aircraft Carrier. Some say it was as big as three football fields.
