PROBLEM 9Q

Why would it be impossible to breathe air through an extra-long snorkel (greater than a couple of meters) while swimming underwater?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 9Q

When we breathe, the volume of our chest cavity expands, which reduces the pressure in our lungs that is less than 1 atm. The  extra-long snorkel can not work, because the pressure exerted by the water in depth is too much which is much more than the chest cavity can overcome. Thus, if the driver have extra-long snorkel while swimming underwater, where the air pressure is 1 atm, then air will flow out of his lungs and he can not take breath.
