1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I know with air bubbles in water that they will rise in water because they are lighter and less dense than water. But if you had lets say a tank of water suspended in the air and at the bottom of the tank there were small holes so small that air can go through the holes but water couldn't. Would the oxygen pass through the holes and rise in the water, or would the oxygen be blocked by the water molecules. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I kind of think that the water would not allow the air to move up because would the water want to move down words and since it couldn't the air will not flow. But I'm not sure on this.
