(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A scuba diver releases an air bubble of diameter 1.0 cm at a depth of 15 m below the surface of a lake. What will be the diameter of this bubble when it reaches the surface? Assume that the temperature of this bubble remains constant.

2. Relevant equations

p=F/A

pV=nRT

pV=NkT

R=8.31 J/mole K

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure on how to find the unknowns (F or p) for the formula p=F/A
