## anonymous one year ago If the Earth were the size of a 1.2 meter diameter globe, what would be the average thickness of the ocean on that globe?

1. anonymous

Average ocean depth of earth is 3729 meters. Earths meters in diameter is 12,742,000 meters. To make it proportional we would use this $\frac{ 3729 meters }{ 12,742,000 meters }=\frac{ ? }{ 1.2meters }$

You think that makes sense?

3. anonymous

Ocean depth is ocean thickness.

4. anonymous

yes, the proportion makes sense

5. anonymous

With this kind of information, I am pretty sure this is the only way.

6. anonymous

so woulnd't the average depth be 0.00035m?

7. anonymous

Yea, it looks correct.

8. anonymous

Thickness of ocean should be a lot smaller than diameter of earth.

9. anonymous

yeah, especially at that small scale

10. anonymous

Ikr, earth would the size of my earth like that lol.

11. anonymous

would be*

12. anonymous

hahaha true!

Got any other question?
