It took the Titanic two hours and forty minutes to sink, after hitting the iceberg at 11:40 pm on the night of April 14 1912. Titanic had already received warnings of icebergs from the steamer SS Amerika and also the Mesaba, but unfortunately, both warnings weren't delivered to the correct place.

After the iceberg was spotted by lookouts, warnings were sent to the bridge, and an attempt to turn and reverse the ship went wrong, ending in a collision between the right side of the ship and the iceberg.

The ship's creator, Thomas Andrews and a few others carried out an inspection on the ship after the collision, and from this it became clear that the sinking of the Titanic was inevitable. After the inspection, a distress signal was sent out, and lifeboats were readied just after midnight, with the first one being lowered just after 12.40 am on April 15, 1912.

It took two hours and forty minutes for the ship to sink. All those people who were on board of the ship were amazed at the size of it. When it hit the iceberg they probably thought that it would have been better going on a usual ship. Those of you who say such nonsense as aliens sunk Titanic or that it took 90 hours for it to sink... Explain your reasoning of saying that or just keep quiet. How would you feel if you were laughed at after such a catastrophe? Would you be laughing when you were told that you almost died on a sinking ship because of aliens?

Titanic sailed on the Atlantic Ocean. It hit the iceberg at approximately 11:40 on April 12th 1912. The stern of the ship, which was the last part to sink, would go underwater at approximately 2:40 AM on April 13th so from the time Titanic hit the iceberg until the time she sank was 3 hours.

The 2 hr. And 45 min's is right....But the inspection that was only really done a few different time's
after finding it on the bottom of the sea,different samples were tested (construction and the steel used)  Done by Popular Mechanics>>> the steel was mass produced in a hurry to meet deadlines and cutting corners for budget pourpeses...was too brittle... Sulfer content was off...from what I read over 20 yrs. Ago...
