Water Pressure

There is a lot of pressure in the ocean with all the weight of the water above it pressing down. To see what this means, I brought along some polystyrene cups with me. There were put in a stocking and tied to the multicorer. This multicorer went down to 3000m (that's 3km of water above you!) . Look at how the pressure of all this water compressed the cups!
