Answer :

Given:


Maximum stress the structure can withstand is (P) = 109 Pa


Depth of the ocean (d) = 3 km = 3 × 103 m


Density of water (ρ) = 1000 kg/m3


We know that pressure due to depth d = ρgd


Pressure due to depth d of water = ρgd


= 1000 kg/m3 × 9.8 m/s2 × (3 × 103m)


= 2.94 × 107 Pa


The maximum allowable stress for the structure(109Pa ) is greater than the pressure of the sea (2.94 × 107Pa). Hence the structure can be put on top of an oil well in the ocean.
