Why Don't the Waters of Atlantic and Pacific Ocean Mix at their Meeting Point

Cape Horn, the southernmost headland of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago of southern Chile, marks the northern boundary of the Drake Passage and marks where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meet. The waters around Cape Horn are particularly hazardous, owing to strong winds. Large waves, strong currents and icebergs have made it notorious as a sailors' graveyard. The Panama Canal is an artificial 77-km waterway in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean. The need for ships to round Cape Horn was greatly reduced by the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914.

The Drake Passage is the body of water between South America's Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. The Drake Passage, the opening between the southern tip of Chile and the northern tip of the Palmer Peninsula, connects the Southwestern part of the Atlantic Ocean with the Southeastern part of the Pacific Ocean and extends into the Southern Ocean.

The waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean do not get mixed. It is mainly due to the chemical and mineral composition of the waters of the two oceans. Density difference is also a reason behind the fact. The density difference is a function of different salinity and temperatures.

Direction of currents makes it more difficult to mix, though it is false to say that the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean never mix. The two oceans have different Surface Currents and Deep Water Currents circulation in them.

Names of Numbers: How Much is 1 Billion and One Million US Dollars in Indian Rupees

For current exchange rate of US Dollars to Indian Rupees, perform a google search - "usd inr".

(As of 2nd December, 2017)



Traditional British usage assigned new names for each power of one million (the LONG SCALE):
1,000,000 = 1 million;
1,000,0002 = 1 billion;
1,000,0003 = 1 trillion; and so on...

Traditional American usage, Canadian and modern British usage assign new names for each power of one thousand (the SHORT SCALE):
billion = 1000 × 10002 = 109
trillion = 1000 × 10003 = 1012
and so on...

As of "Short Scale" [ Traditional American usage (US, English Canadian, Australian, and modern British) ]

1 Billion US Dollars = 1,000,000,000 x 65 = 65,000,000,000 Indian Rupees

(1 USD = 65 INR approx.)


1 Million US Dollars = 1,000,000 x 65 = 65,000,000 Indian Rupees (It is same for both short and long scale since, 1 Million = 106   , in both cases)
