What is the ocean pressure at 3000 feet deep?
At sea level, you have one atmosphere of pressure(14.7 psi). Every 33 ft that you descend adds another atmosphere of pressure. Therefore 3000 ft/33 ft=90.91 ATM. Now add the one atmosphere at the surface to get 91.91 ATM of pressure at 3000 ft depth. Also, 91.91 ATM times 14.7 psi per ATM of pressure equals 1,351 psi.
