2. At 115 ft below the surface of the ocean, where the
temperature is 4.27 °C, a SCUBA diver exhales an air bubble having
a volume of 1.37 cm^{3}. If the surface temperature of the
ocean is 23.5 °C, what is the volume of the bubble just before it
breaks the surface? Give your answer in cm^{3}. You may
assume the average density of the seawater = 1029
kg/m^{3}.

Answer #1

from ideal gas equation,

P*V = n*R*T

V = n*R*T/P

at bottom,

Vb = Volume of bubble = 1.37 cm^3

Tb = Temperature at the bottom = 4.27 degC = 4.27 + 273.15 = 277.42 K

Pb = Patm + rho*g*h

h = depth of bottom = 115 ft = 115 ft*(1 m/3.281 ft) = 35.052

rho = density of seawater = 1029 kg/m^3

P_atm = atmospheric pressure = 1 atm = 1.01325*10^5 Pa

Pb = Patm + 1029*9.81*35.052 = 1.01325*10^5 + 1029*9.81*35.052

Pb = 455157.06 Pa

at surface,

Vs = Volume of bubble at the top before it breaks = ?

Ts = 23.5 C = 23.5 + 273.15 = 296.65 K

Ps = Patm = 1.01325*10^5 Pa = 101325 Pa

also, R = 8.314 = gas constant

nb = ns = number of moles in the bubble

then, Vb/Vs = (Tb/Ts)*(Ps/Pb)

by putting values,

Vs = Vb*(Ts/Tb)*(Pb/Ps)

Vs = 1.37*(296.65/277.42)*(455157.06/101325)

**Vs = 6.58 cm^3**

**Let me know if you've any query.**
