how deep is the titanic

The Titanic infamously hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in April 1912, killing more than 1,500 people.

The wreckage of the Titanic, discovered in 1985, sits in two parts at the bottom of the ocean nearly 13,000 feet below the surface, southeast of Newfoundland.

2.4 miles – the approximate depth at which the wreck of the Titanic lays.

3.75 km – the approximate depth, expressed in kilometres.

3,840 metres – the approximate depth in metres.

12,600 feet – the approximate depth in feet.

400 – the water pressure, measured in atmospheres, at the depth where Titanic rests.

5-10 minutes – the approximate time it took the Titanic to reach the ocean floor.

56 km/h – the approximate speed (35 mph) that the bow section travelled to the sea floor.

60 feet – the depth that the bow reaches beneath the ocean floor (18 metres).

40 feet – the amount of the bow that sits above the surface of the sea bottom (12 metres).

80 km/h – the approximate speed (50 mph) that the stern section travelled on its way down.
