 R.Gayathri said: (Mar 29, 2011) THIS REALLY HELPS ALL IN THEIR STUDIES .

 Sandesha said: (Apr 10, 2011) What is meant by SALINITY?

 Sundar said: (Apr 11, 2011) Salinity: salt: the taste experience when common salt is taken into the mouth

 Mukesh Kumar Singh said: (May 20, 2011) The presence of salt in sea water is called salinity.

 Rekha Sharma said: (Jul 21, 2011) Salt means that Substance formed by acid and base in a decidate ratio

 Namita Karan said: (Nov 15, 2011) How this calculation is possible?

 P.V.S said: (Feb 19, 2012) May be, one cubic of water said as 100%. The amount of salt present in that one cubic water is 3.5%. And now salinity is 3.5%.

 Bhawana Pandey said: (Apr 8, 2012) Common salt is Nacl. Which is made by NaOH and HCl. Which is called saltand the amount of salt present in sea is called salinity. :).

 Prkaz91@Yahoo.Com said: (Jul 13, 2012) How much % salinity of in sea ?

 Priya said: (Jul 21, 2012) Accumulation of salt is called salinity.

 Ram said: (Jul 26, 2012) The salinity is not even in all the areas of sea. It varies from 3.1% to 3.8%. :).

 Amit said: (Oct 20, 2012) I am satisfied to this answers but it is depend of area of sea somewhere % of salt % is hight and low its right or not.

 Anil said: (Nov 7, 2012) Salinity is the saltiness or dissolved salt content of a body of water.

 Pooja Sharma said: (Feb 14, 2013) How we can find the average salinity like 3.5% of sea water ? Explain.

 Chari said: (Nov 12, 2013) I think salinity of the sea water depends on the surrounding land mass. Due to the water run-flow from the land some minerals dissolved and added into the oceans from billion of years. And also by, waste from animals living in oceans and there are some other reasons also.

 Muhammad said: (Nov 17, 2013) Salinity is the degree of salt or salt content in water.

 Sharon said: (Jan 4, 2014) About my self different waters have different ph levels.

 Venkataramana said: (Mar 31, 2014) Salinity is nothing but percentage of salt present in the sea water.

 Saurabh Bhandari said: (Apr 15, 2014) Its the taste that is experience in the tongue when common salt is tasted.

 Manikanta said: (Apr 25, 2014) To mix the salt in ocean water is called salinity.

 Ajeet Kumar Yadav said: (May 26, 2014) Seawater or salt water is water from a sea or ocean. On average, seawater in the world's oceans has a salinity of about 3.5% (35 g/L, or 599 mM). This means that every kilogram (roughly one litre by volume) of seawater has approximately 35 grams of dissolved salts (predominantly sodium (Na+ ) and chloride (Cl-) ions)

 Aditya Goswami said: (Dec 27, 2014) It is true and the most salty sea in the world is 'dead sea' which has 29 percent of salt present in it.

 Balaji said: (Mar 2, 2015) 3.5% means what out of 100%?

 Mukesh Saini said: (May 18, 2015) I can't understand what is mean by 3.5 salinity of sea water?

 Chandu said: (Jul 12, 2015) Salinity is the measure of all the salts dissolved in water. Salinity is usually measured in parts per thousand (ppt or). The average ocean salinity is 35 ppt and the average river water salinity is 0.5 ppt or less. This means that in every kilogram (1000 grams) of seawater, 35 grams are salt.

 Prathibha Patel said: (Aug 20, 2015) In the open ocean away from land the salt content (or salinity) of the seawater tends to range between 30 and 35 ppt (parts per thousand). This is equivalent to 3.0 to 3.5 % (or parts per hundred).

 Sanjeet Kumar said: (Mar 2, 2016) The average salinity of sea water is 35 g/L (grams per thousand) about 35 parts per thousand.

 Maheswar Majhi said: (Apr 11, 2016) What is meant by silent water?

 Roshan said: (Aug 1, 2016) Salinity means. How much salt dissolved in it. Below 5ppt called fresh (mitha) and 5 to 35 ppt sea ka hota h. Please convert it in%.

 Sarita Yadav said: (Jan 7, 2017) @Maheswar Majhi. Salinity means presence of avarege quantity of Nacl in a fixed cubic bowl.

 Akshita Badoni said: (Apr 8, 2017) Salt means that substance formed by acid and base in a decided ratio.

 Uttam Kumar Roy said: (Apr 12, 2017) After big bang surface and the core of the earth were highly temperatured passes of time there created many large holes on the surface of the earth. At the meantime, there was heavy rainfall about 200 cores of simultaneously the water flowed from the surface of the earth and finally dropped into that holes. During the flowing time, various kinds of salt mixed into the water and thus the water became salty. And if the vapour 1-liter water then you can get about 3.5 g salt. And total water of the world only 1% water is drinkable.

 Md Nazim Akhtar said: (Jul 21, 2017) In the presence of sea water then salinity and another name salt.

 S.Vasanthi said: (Jul 24, 2017) The presence of salt in sea water is called salinity.

 Sonal said: (Nov 5, 2017) The presence of salt in sea water is called salinity.

 Bijaya Lakshmi Sarma said: (Apr 7, 2018) Seawater is water from a sea or ocean. On average, seawater in the world's oceans has a salinity of approximately 3.5%, or 35 parts per thousand. This means that for every 1 litre (1000 mL) of seawater there are 35 grams of salts (mostly, but not entirely, sodium chloride) dissolved in it.

 Dhananjay said: (Jan 9, 2019) Salinity is the measure of all the salts dissolved in water. Salinity is usually measured in parts per thousand (ppt or). The average ocean salinity is 35ppt and the average river water salinity is 0.5ppt or less. This means that in every kilogram (1000 grams) of seawater, 35 grams are salt.

 Dilip said: (Sep 8, 2019) Salinity is usually expressed in parts per thousand so 35grams of salt (35/1000 )*100 that is 3.5 percent.
