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.

  • Physics -

    P1V1=P2V2
    P1 = 1 atm
    P2=1atm(1+5.2/10.4)

    V1=2liters
    solve for V2
