However...

https://www.universetoday.com/65588/...arth-is-water/

"... in terms of mas, scientists calculate that the oceans on Earth weight about 1.35 x 1018 metric tonnes (1.488 x 1018 US tons), which is the equivalent of 1.35 billion trillion kg, or 2976 trillion trillion pounds. This is just 1/4400 the total mass of the Earth, which means that while the oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, they only account for 0.02% of our planet’s total mass."

So, the Earth is actually 99.98% non-water, and you are busted yet again...

The outer core is liquid, mostly iron.
