A diver observes a bubble of air rising from the bottom of a lake (where the absolute pressure is 3.50 atm to the surface (where the pressure is 1.00 atm). The temperature at the bottom is 4.0 C, and the temperature at the surface is 23.0 C}.

What is the ratio of the volume of the bubble as it reaches the surface to its volume at the bottom, V2/V1?

2. Relevant equations

p1V1/T1 = p2V2/T2

V2/V1 = p1/p2 * T2/T1

3. The attempt at a solution

V2/V1 = (3.5)/1 * 23/4

V2/V1 = 20.125
