At the very center.

### Pressure increases with depth toward the center of the earth in which layer would you expect pressure to be the greatest?

At the very center.

### How hot is the center of the core?

There is no way to measure the temperature at the Earth's core directly. We know from mines and drill holes that, near the surface of the Earth, the temperature increases by about 1 degree Fahrenheit for every 60 feet in depth. If this temperature increase continued to the center of the Earth, the Earth's core would be 100,000 degrees Celsius! But nobody believes the Earth is that hot; the temperature increase must slow down with depth and the core is probably about 3000 to 5000 degrees Celsius.

### Where is the deepest ice on earth?

The deepest ice on Earth can be found at the Bentley Subglacial Trench in Antarctica. It has a depth of 8,383 feet.

### How do you figure depth of cylinder in sq feet?

Depth is not a dimension of a cylinder. Also, depth is measured in feet, not sq feet.

### Why do geologists think that the temperature increases with depth?

because of the core (center of the Earth) emits immense heat.

### How old is something found one thousand feet in the earth?

There is no direct relationship between age and depth.

### Does pressure increase or decrease in deep water?

I'm not quite sure, but I would say that pressure does increase as you near the center of the Earth. Some argue that when you reach the center, there would be no pressure because of the equal amount of weight on each side. My question is...is the weight equal on every side. If not, then there would be pressure inside the core of the Earth.

### How many feet of depth is 1000 atmospheres?

1,000atm is about 33,900 feet of water depth.

### What is the earths radius in feet?

There is no exact radius of the Earth, but the average is 3,959 miles or 20,903,520 feet. The Earth is rotating on it's axis and because of this rapid rotation the Earth's poles tend to flatten. Which makes the radius from the center to the equator larger than from the center to the poles.

### What is the depth of earth surface in kilometers?

A surface has area but no depth. Therefore the Earth's Surface has a depth of 0.0 kilometers.
