Excellent! My first entry. Let's see ... there are 1 thousand litres in a cubic meter {1 litre occupies a space of 10cm cubed} and 1 TRILLion litres in a cubic kilometer. Now the numbers get big! The World Ocean has an approximate volume of 1,347,000,000 cu/km {1.347

billion km3} Therefor 1 347 000 000 x 1 000 000 000 000 = 1.34700 x 1021 Another way of saying that is 1.35 SEXTILLION litres, which is 1.35 trillion-billion!! Good luck Iain

Iain you are a Legend. U saved your day and we would like to help us out with the following question. If we would fill these 1.35 quintillion litres in 1 Liter milkbottles,how many layers off milkbottles would it take to cover the earth?

Good Luck The three bro's WOW! Please see above! I had another look at the numbers of litres and had to revise by 3 decimal places! Sorry for the confusion. To answer your question: I have assumed that a 1 litre milk bottle would occupy a surfacearea of 10cm by 10cm. Planet Earth has a surface area of 510 million square Kilometers {including oceans} 1 square Km could hold 100 million bottles. So the entire planet could hold a layer of 51 000 000 000 000 000 bottles! That's is 51 Quadrillion bottles - however that is not nearly enough space. You would need about 26 411.76 (26 thousand layers) to use up all those litre bottles!

The ocean covers a lot as all of the named oceans and many of the seas are connected. So 'the ocean' is much bigger than 'an ocean', such as the Pacific Ocean. But if you mean the Pacific Ocean (the largest ocean of Earth) according to Wikipedia, the Pacific Ocean consists of "622 million cubic km of water". (Accessed 8/17/12)

There are about 20 drops of water in 1 milliliter(mL). For room temperature, pure water at atmospheric pressure, this is reliable to 20 drops = 1.00 mL, so our precision is about 1/100, about the same as Wikipedia's estimate of the volume. A mL is a centimeter cubed (cm3). There are 100 cm in 1 meter and 1000 m in a km, so there are 105 cm/km. Cube this term and you get 1015 cm3/km3. So multiply 20 drops/cm3 x 1015 cm3/km3 x 622 x 106 km3 = 12440 1021 drops. The second '4' and the trailing '0' of 12440 are a guess because we are only estimating, so putting it together we get, 1.24 x 1025 drops of water in just the Pacific Ocean.

You may have never heard of Avogadro's Number, 6.022 x 1023, but an Avogadro's Number of something is said to be a mole of something. For example, a mole of carbon-12 atoms has a mass of 12 g (definition). The number of drops of water in the Pacific Ocean is about 20.7 moles. If we matched one atom of carbon for every drop of water in the Pacific Ocean, the carbon would weigh only 248 g or about 8.75 ounces of carbon.

The world's oceans combined comprise 1.37 billion cubic kilometers of water. The equates to 1.37e+18 cubic meters of water.

About 352,670,000,000,000,000,000 gallons.
