The deepest point in the ocean is in the Mariana Trench, about 11 km deep. The pressure at that point is huge, about 1.13 x10^{8}N/m^{2}.

(a) The deepest point in the ocean is in the Mariana Trench, about 11 km deep. The pressure at that point is huge, about 1.13 x10^{8}N/m^{2}.

(b) The density of water at the surface is 1.03 x10^{3}kg/m^{3}. Find its density at the bottom.

2. Relevant equations

P=B(ΔV/V)

3. The attempt at a solution

a. 1.13 x10^{8}N/m^{2}= -(2.15 x10^{9}Pa)(ΔV/(1.00 m^{3}))

ΔV = -0.053 m^{3}

b. Since water is not compressible, shouldn't the density be the same at the bottom of the ocean as the top?
