Homework Help: Finding The Volume of An Air Bubble Just Before It Breaks Surface

  1. Jan 23, 2010 #1
    At 24.0 m below the surface of the sea (density = 1025 kg/m3), where the temperature is 5.00°C, a diver exhales an air bubble having a volume of 0.90 cm3. If the surface temperature of the sea is 20.0°C, what is the volume of the bubble just before it breaks the surface?

    Use P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2.
