(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Part A

What is the pressure at a depth of 5000 in the ocean? Given rho_water=1,030 kg/m^3

pTotal=p_0 + rho*g*h=5.06×107

Part B

What is the fractional volume change of seawater at this pressure? Given B=0.2*10^10

dV/v=p/-B =−2.53×10−2

Part C

What is the density of seawater at this pressure? (This is the question that I don't understand)

2. Relevant equations

(1)pTotal=p_0 + rho*g*h

(2)dV/v=p/-B

(3)p=F/A

3. The attempt at a solution

Part C: The liquid is incompressible. So. I guessed that the density of the liquid is still 1,030 kg/m^3 at a depth of 5,000m. And, I don't know why my answer was considered wrong.
