My question is as follows:

**Consider a point in the ocean about 9.60 km deep. The pressure at that point is huge, about 9.89 x 10^7 N/m^2.**

(a) Calculate the change in volume of 1.00 m^3 of water carried from the surface to this point in the ocean.

(a) Calculate the change in volume of 1.00 m^3 of water carried from the surface to this point in the ocean.

I set up an equation:

change in volume = [(change in pressure)(inital volume)] / Buoyance Force, which is [-(9.89 x 10^7 N/m^2)(1 m^3)] / (2.9 x 10^9 N), which finally equals -.034 m^3 for the change in volume, but that's wrong. Note: My TA gave me the value for the buoyance force.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
