Would appreciate if anyone can spare some time to solve this problem?

1. Assume the present concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is 360ppmv (mLm-3), and the average concentration in the surface layer of the ocean is 0.868 mgL-1 of CO2(aq). Calculate the flux rate in Gt C yr-1 (1 gigaton = 1015g) to the ocean from the atmosphere. Do you understand why it is so difficult to get accurate estimate of CO2 flux to the ocean?

A= 3.6×1018cm2 ocean area
H= Henryˈs constant = 0.77(mgL-1air)/( (mgL-1H2O) at 15˚C
KL= overall mass transfer coefficient = 20.0 cm h-1
