- Homework Statement
- Calculate the depth (in m) to which a balloon full of Kr must be pushed underwater to make it sink to the bottom of the sea. It takes place at 25 degrees Celsius, we know that p (atm) = 101 325 Pa, density (of sea H2O) = 1.04 g/cm3, g = 9.81 m/s2 and the M (Kr) = 83,8 g/mol, and that Kr acts as an ideal gas.

- Relevant Equations
- p1*V1 = p2*V2

Hello.

Firstly, I've calculated the density of Kr ( = 3.74 g/dm3), and I know that the p (fluid) = ρ * h * g. And then I've used the following equation: p1*V1 = p2*V2, and therefore: p1*V1 = ρ * h * g * (m/ρ) => p1*V1 = h * g * m. (h = 3.0153 m) Is that correct? Please, how could I calculate the new density of Kr in the balloon? (To make sure my answer is correct.) Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you!
