    The volume of Pacific Ocean is the product of its surface area (SA) and its depth (D). From the given,

    V = SA x D = (1.8 x 10^8 km²) x (3.9 x 10^3 m) x (1 km / 1000 m) = 702000000 km³

    Convert this volume to liters through dimensional analysis,

    (702000000 km ³) x (1000 m / 1 km) ³ x (1000 L / 1 m³) = 7.02 x 10^20 L
