QUESTION: Dear ZZ

Can we perform a experiment for measuring the Swimming pool depth which we already know is 10 Feet deep with the help of Fathometer and its accessories?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

ANSWER: Yes, of course.

10 feet is approximately 1.6 fathoms where one fathom is equal to six feet!

You can normally find fathometers and depth finders at marine shops and sporting good stores where they sell depth finders, fish finders, lake bottom mapping, etc.  If you have any trouble you can find them at google/shopping site.

Best wishes.

QUESTION: Dear ZZ

Thanks.

The sonic equipment will be useful for the oil and gas exploration industry as the depth of the sea will be known before?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Yes, much of the ocean floor has been mapped and readily available to the commercial world that has interest in knowing from oceanography point of view.

Especially near the shorelines of the continents; the oil exploration and shipping lines have been at it for long time.
