Question: What is pressure and why is there so much of it under the sea?

  1. Hi annoying1hoot
    Pressure is a measure of force per unit area.
    The deeper into water you go, the more pressure there will be from all the water above you. And since water is much heavier than air it puts a lot of pressure on your lungs and can cause decompression sickness, something that is common in deep sea divers.



  1. Does it mean that you can get crushed if you go too deep into the sea?


  2. yes, but if you’ve had deep sea diver training and have the proper equipment, mainly air, you will be okay.
