Infinite solubility of gases under extreme pressure

  1. Jul 21, 2003 #1
    At what depth (roughly speaking) will gaseous oxygen dissolve (because of the surrounding pressure) into the water? Again, not asking for a precise figure. Thanks

    Oxygen will dissolve into water right at the surface.
