## Fall12-13 3 years ago Given that the surface area of the oceans is approximately 361,000,000 km2, use the histogram of ocean area vs. depth (Figure 4-15) to estimate the total volume of the oceans. How does your result compare with the known ocean volume of 1,338,000,000 km3? http://www.freeimagehosting.net/5bkpb

what grade is this for, college?

T_T college is so hard...

15. Fall12-13

Lol I know...

16. joshi

wait why does it say mount everest on the graph?

17. Fall12-13

never mind that, just tell me how can i find the depth.

18. joshi

well i can't know that without seeing the histogram. but if we assume the ocean is like a cuboid. and we know the surface area, so we know that lw + hl + wh = 361 whatever and then the depth is the height, so w x h x l = whatever the number is but then there's 3 variables. never mind that makes no sense.

the histogram is posted as an attached file.
