How much of the water on earth is salt water?
How much percent of fresh water lies on earth?
Assuming you mean "How much of the water on Earth is fresh water", about 5% of the water on the Earth is fresh water, as opposed to about 95% salt water. To anser your question directly though, 100% of the fresh water we know about is on Earth. There is some water on other celestial bodies, but I wouldn't exactly call it fresh water.
Asked in Earth Sciences
How much of earths water is fresh?
About 71% of Earth's surface is covered by water; the hydrosphere. The hydrosphere is all of the water in and on the earth. How much of that water is fresh? 97% of the water on Earth is salt water. This means that only 3% of the hydrosphere is fresh water. Why do you think "hydro" means water? Of that 3%, 85% of the fresh water is frozen in glaciers and ice-caps. Thus, just 15% of 3% of Earth's total water is liquid-fresh water.

Asked in Earth Sciences
What percentage of earths water is not liquid fresh water?
3% of Earth's water is fresh and of this 3%, 69% is Ice. Thus 97% of Earth's water is salty and 2.07 of the fresh water is Ice. Which means 99.07% of Earth's water is not liquid fresh water. __________________________________________________________________ The percentage of fresh water volume to total water is 2.5 %. Of this total volume 70% is ice. Of this fresh water around 30% is underground water. Fresh water lakes and rivers contain around 0.3% of total fresh water. The total usable fresh water is less than 1% of all fresh water resources. refer to link below
