Question and answer
why is the pressure greater in the deepest parts of the ocean?
The pressure of water increases with depth because of the weight of the water pushing down from above. The greater the pressure, the farther the stream of water squirts, so the stream of water coming from the bottom hole squirts farther. [ In the ocean, the deeper you go, the greater the pressure of the water pushing down on you. For every 33 feet (10 m) you go down, the pressure increases by 15 pounds per square inch (1.1 kg per cm2). In some of the deepest parts of the ocean, the pressure is as great as an elephant's weight pressing down on an area the size of a postage stamp. source: ]
