Homework Help: Weather Balloon and Scuba Diving relationships

    "Weather Balloon" and "Scuba Diving" relationships

    Hello so I am suppose to state any relationships between a "Weather Ballon" and "Scuba Diving" those could include equations, laws, both rely on a source etc. I know that for the weather balloon the higher you go up the less pressure there is and in scuba diving pressure increases when you go deeper. Thanks if anyone could help me out. :)

    yep. that is one way that there is a similar 'behaviour'. Also, did you know that scuba divers inflate a pocket of air in their jacket. think of why they do this, using the balloon as analogy.
