The deepest point in the ocean is in the Mariana Trench, about 11 km deep. The pressure at this depth is huge, about 1.13 - 108 N/m2.
(a) Calculate the change in volume of 1.00 m3 of seawater carried from the surface to this deepest point in the Pacific Ocean.
(b) The density of seawater at the surface is 1.03 - 103 kg/m3. Find its density at the bottom. (c) Is it a good approximation to think of water as incompressible? |
