1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The solubility of N2 in blood at 37 degree and at a partial pressure of 0.8 atm is 5.6 x 10-4 mol/L?
a deep sea diver breathes compressed air with the partial pressure of N2 equal to 4 atm. Assume that the total volume of blood in the body is 5 L. Calculate the amount of N2 gas released (in liters at 37 degree and 1 atm) when the diver returns to the surface of water, where the partial pressure of N2 is 0.8 atm

2. The attempt at a solution

I got the answer of 0.389, but someone told me it is 0.35. Is my answer correct?
