Divers know that the pressure exerted by
the water increases about 100 kPa with every
10.2 m of depth. This means that at 10.2 m
below the surface, the pressure is 201 kPa;
at 20.4 m below the surface, the pressure is
301 kPa; and so forth. If the volume of a
balloon is 2.2 L at STP and the temperature
of the water remains the same, what is the
volume 59.81 m below the water’s surface?
Do you know what this means?
