Answer:The bottom of the sea is 25 m below sea level.Explanation:Given data

Mass = 6.1 ×

We know that Buoyant force on the tank is equal to gravity force of the tank.

1020 × = 6.1 ×

= 598039.21

We know that

= W × L × H

598039.21 = 300 × 80 × H

H = 25 mTherefore the bottom of the sea is 25 m below sea level.
