Question

# The average depth of Indian Ocean is about $$3000m$$. The fractional compression, $$\cfrac { \Delta V }{ V }$$ of water at the bottom of the ocean is then(Given: Bulk modulus of the water$$=2.2\times { 10 }^{ 9 }N{ m }^{ -2 }$$ and $$g=10m{ s }^{ -2 }$$)

A
0.82%
B
0.91%
C
1.36%
D
1.24%

Solution

## The correct option is C $$1.36$$%The pressure exerted by a $$3000m$$ column of water on the bottom layer is$$P=h\rho g=3000m\times 1000kg\quad { m }^{ -3 }\times 10m\quad { s }^{ -2 }=3\times { 10 }^{ 7 }N\quad { m }^{ -2 }\quad$$Fractional compression $$\cfrac { \Delta V }{ V }$$ is$$\cfrac { \Delta V }{ V } =\cfrac { P }{ B } =\cfrac { 3\times { 10 }^{ 7 }N\quad { m }^{ -2 } }{ 2.2\times { 10 }^{ 9 }N\quad { m }^{ -2 } } =1.36\times { 10 }^{ -2 }=1.36\quad$$%Physics
