Technology continues to grow
Out of curiosity, does anyone actually know how much damage a cannon shot would do to a modern ship?
Broadside from an old ship would damage a modern one a lot, but it won't sink and probably will be able to return fire immediately.
Modern ships are mostly unarmored, except in vital areas, old cannons would have no problem punching holes. However sinking it would be almost impossible. In old age main killers were wood and bone shrapnel, those wouldn't matter as somewhat mild and relatively thin metal won't give much if any shrapnel(from old cannon) and crew isn't as tightly packed.
If we were talking about WW2 battleships, they wouldn't even dent.
Why did they reduce armor to the outside from ww2 to now?
Simple reason, threats have changed. Modern anti-ship weapons are insanely powerful, one hit will sink or incapacitate any ship in existence. So it's next to impossible to make armor work. Instead they decided to scrap armor for lighter faster cheaper design and put shitton of technology into it like stealth, CIWS, powerful radars, decoy systems and long range weaponry.
After all, the best way to survive is to not to get detected and second best is to never get hit.
Back then you kinda had to be able to take a hit from the limited range of ww1-2 weapons, now battles involve watching a radar and shooting torpedoes from miles away, so heavy armor just isn't worth the cost
Depends. For most surface combatants, a hit to the side could puncture the superstructure or dent the hull. For a carrier it'll do real damage to the superstructure, but carrier towers are flimsy by design - the hull is pretty strong. A battleship will most likely complain that something has tickled it.
