What Is Ocean Water Made of?

Answer

If you ask someone what ocean or sea water is made of, chances are good they'll say salt. Surprisingly, most of the ocean water is actually pure water, or hydrogen and oxygen. There are many other minerals that are found in sea water, including magnesium, potassium and calcium, but sodium and chlorine (NaCl=salt) are found most often.
