Problem 35P

PROBLEM 35P

A snorkeler with a lung capacity of 6.3 L inhales a lungful of air at the surface, where the pressure is 1.0 atm. The snorkeler then descends to a depth of 25 m, where the pressure increases to 3.5 atm. What is the capacity of the snorkeler's lungs at this depth? (Assume constant temperature.)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 35P

A snorkeler with a lung capacity of 6.3 L inhales a lungful of air at the surface, where the pressure is 1.0 atm. The snorkeler then descends to a depth of 25 m, where the pressure increases to 3.5 atm. What is the capacity of the snorkeler's lungs at this depth? (Assume constant temperature.)

                                                               Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 2

According to Boyle's law, at constant temperature, pressure is inversely proportional to its volume of a certain gas.

...............(1)

Rearrange the formula (1)

...........(2)

 = initial pressure of the gas

 = Initial volume of the gas

 = Final pressure of the gas

 = final volume of the gas.

Step 2 of 2
