    If I have a volume of water that is 54,000km3, and I pour it into a container that has an area of 361,330,000km2 (and as high as it needed to be), how high would the water come up the container? (and/or how is this calculated?

    Thanks

    Volume / Area, i.e. 54000 divided by 361330000 (I don't know whether you missed off a zero in the end there, or misplaced the comma).

    The key hear is that the volume is conserved and so area X height = 54000 which ends up with about 150mm (using 54000 and 361,330,000)
