# Problem: The deepest point in the ocean is 11 km below sea level, deeper than Mt. Everest is tall.What is the pressure in atmospheres at this depth?

###### FREE Expert Solution

Pressure:

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{0}}}{\mathbf{+}}{\mathbf{h}}{\mathbf{\rho }}{\mathbf{g}}}$

P0 = 1.013 × 105Pa (Atmospheric pressure), ρ = 1030 kg/m3 (density of water), g = 9.81 m/s2, and h = 11 × 103m
