Any help is appreciated, I'm really just trying to figure out if it can withstand 300 meters but it would be useful to see how/if a max depth can be calculated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

diameter: 20M

steel density: 7850 kg/m^3

weight: 250,000 kg

shell thickness: 2.54 cm

density of water: 1027 kg/m^3

How much does inside of sphere being filled with oxygen versus being evacuated affect the calculation?

If I put reinforcing bars inside the sphere it would be stronger but I assume figuring out how much stronger is really complicated.

Again, any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.
