Question

A SCUBA tank, an air tank used for breathing under water, is initially filled with gas at a pressure of 2.8x107 Pa and 32 oC. The tank has a volume of 11.5 L. If the tank will continue to provide air until it reaches a pressure of 1.2x106 Pa, how many moles of gas will it provide to a diver diving in water at 10 oC? Give your answer in moles to at least three significant figures. Hint: There will be air left in the tank when the it reaches the lowest pressure the tank can deliver. The amount of air left might be useful in solving this problem.

Answer #1

**Given**

The pressure at initial situation P = 2.8 x 10^{7}
Pa

The temperature at initial situation T = 32^{o} C = 32 +
273 K = 305 K

The pressure at the end P’ = 1.2 x 10^{6} pa

The temperature at final condition T’ = 10^{o}C = 10+273
= 283 K

Volume of the container V = 11.5 L = 0.0115 m^{3}

Universal gas constant R = 8.314 m^{3} Pa/mol K

**Solution**

The Ideal Gas law states that PV=nRT

Where n is the number of moles

n = PV/RT

In the initial situation the number of moles in the container can be

n_{1} = PV/RT

n_{1} = 2.8 x 10^{7} x 0.0115 / 8.314 x 305

n_{1} = 126.98 mol

The number of moles left in the container

n_{2} = P’V/RT’

n_{2} = 1.2 x 10^{6} x 0.0115 / 8.314 x 283

n_{2} = 5.86 moles

to total number of moles provided by the tank to the diver is N
= n_{1} – n_{2} = 126.98 - 5.86 = 121.12 moles

A SCUBA tank, an air tank used for breathing under water, is
initially filled with gas at a pressure of 2.3x107 Pa
and 25 oC. The tank has a volume of 16.0 L. If the tank
will continue to provide air until it reaches a pressure of
2.5x106 Pa, how many moles of gas will it provide to a
diver diving in water at 6 oC? Give your answer in moles
to at least three significant figures. Hint: There will...

2. An aluminum scuba tank, which has an internal volume of 11.1
L, is filled with air to a pressure of 3000 psi when at room
temperature (i.e. 20.0 OC). A diver takes the tank into seawater,
where the water temperature is 46 degrees Fahrenheit (i.e. 8.00OC).
To what pressure does the air in the tank drop? (The thermal
coefficient of expansion for aluminum is 24.0x10-6 OC -1 .)
Answer: 2880 psi

A scuba diver takes a tank of air on a deep dive. The tank's
volume is 10 L and it is completely filled with air at an absolute
pressure of 237 atm at the start of the dive. The air temperature
at the surface is 85 ?F and the diver ends up in deep water at 60
?F.
Assuming thermal equilibrium and neglecting air loss, determine
the absolute internal pressure of the air when it is cold.

1. scuba diver 40 ft below the ocean surface inhales 45.0 mL of
compressed air from a scuba tank at a pressure of 2.90 atm and a
temperature of 8 ∘ C . What is the final pressure of the air, in
atmospheres, in the lungs when the gas expands to 145.0 mL at a
body temperature of 37 ∘ C , and the amount of gas does not
change?
