pls help #10?

The Titanic was found in 1985 on the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean at a depth of about 5500 m. Assuming the density of the ocean is 1025 Kg/meters cube, what is the pressure at this depth?

P = 55,404,875 Pa

P = 46,404,875 Pa

P = 85,985,009 Pa

P = 55,000,000 Pa

    ρ [rho] = water density = 1,025 kg/m³

    g = acceleration of gravity = 9.81 m/s²

    h = depth of water = 5,500 m

    P = pressure = to be determined

    P = ρgh

    P = (1,025 kg/m³)(9.81 m/s²)(5,500 m)

    P = 55,303,875 Pa

    The closest choice is . . .

    P = 55,404,875 Pa
