physics someone please helpp

posted by on .

A scuba diver has an air tank with a volume of 0.010 m^3. The air in the tank is initially at a pressure of 1.0x10^7 Pa. Assume that the diver breathes 0.400 L/s of air. Find how long the tank will last at a depth of each of the following.
(a) 1.0 m
min

(b) 10.0 m
min

Please someone help me out with this. Thank you!

  • physics someone please helpp - ,

    calculate the pressures at those depths.

    Then, use the Boyle's law (constant temp).

    Ptank*volumetank=pressuredepth*n*.4Liters

    volume of the tank in liters is 10liters.
    solve for n. On the pressure at depth, be certain to add atmospheric pressure which is on top of the water.

    p1•V1 = p2•V2
    p2 = p1+ ρ•g•h1 + p(atm) = 10^7 +1000•9.8•1 + 101325 = 1.011•10^7 Pa,
    V2 = p1•V1/p2 = 0.01•10^7/1.011•10^7 =9.89•10^-3 m^3
    t = V2/Vo = 9.89•10^-3/0.4•10^-3 =24.7 s.
    p1•V1 = p3•V3,
    p2 = p1+ ρ•g•h2 + p(atm) = 10^7 +1000•9.8•10 + 101325 = 1.019•10^7 Pa,
    V3 = p1•V1/p3 = 0.01•10^7/1.019•10^7 =9.81•10^-3 m^3
    t = V3/Vo = 9.81•10^-3/0.4•10^-3 =24.5 s.

  • physics to Elena please reply - ,

    thanks Elena I really appreciate your help, but the answer has to be in minute and I got .42 min for 24.7 s, and .41 min for 24.5 s, but its wrong I don;t know why can you please help.


    Thanks :)
