The pressure on a scuba diver at sea level is 14.7 pounds per sq inch (psi). The pressure increases 0.445 psi for each foot of depth. Suppose the pressure on a diver is 41.4 psi. How deep is she?

A spring is 2 in long with no weight suspended from it. For each ounce of weight. the spring stretches 0.3 in until it reaches its maximum length of 8 in. How many weight must be added for the spring to reach its maximum length?
