An inflated balloon occupies a volume of two (2) liters. The balloon is tied with a string and weighted down with a heavy stone. What is its volume when it reaches the bottom of a pond 5.2 meters deep? Assume the atmospheric pressure is equal to 1 atmosphere and that one atmosphere will support a column of water 10.4 meters high.

P1V1=P2V2

P1 = 1 atm

P2=1atm(1+5.2/10.4)

V1=2liters

solve for V2
