There are five oceans in the world, which cover 71 percent of the earth with its water, but do you know which is the largest ocean in the world. The name of this ocean is the Pacific Ocean, which is the largest and deepest ocean in the world. Today we are going to tell you interesting things about the Pacific Ocean. World's largest ocean separates America and Asia. The area of the Pacific Ocean is 6,36,34,000 square miles, more than double the Atlantic Ocean, the world's second-largest ocean.
The Pacific Ocean is 9,455 miles wide from the Philippines coast to Panama and 10,492 miles long from the Bering Strait to South Antarctica. However, its northern edge is connected to the Arctic Sea by only 36 miles of Bering Strait. The reason for its spread over such a large area is the difference in the living conditions of the inhabitants, vegetation, animals and humans compared to the seas of other parts of the earth. The average depth of the Pacific Ocean is about 14,000 feet and the maximum depth is about 36,201 feet. There is a big difference between its eastern and western edges. On the eastern side, the sequence of mountains is spread or the sea plains are very narrow, on the contrary, on its western side there are not mountains but many islands, creeks, peninsulas and deltas.
The shape of the Pacific Ocean is triangular. Its top is on the Bering Strait, which looks like the shape of a horse's hoof. The surface of this ocean, mainly to the west, is littered with many large long trenches, of which the Mariana Trench (trough) is prominent. It is the deepest oceanic trough in the world, whose depth is 10,994 meters i.e. 36,070 feet. After all, how this ocean was formed, it has not been known till date.
