# A nitrogen gas bubble begins to form in the left knee joint of a deep sea diver just before they begin their ascent to the surface. The nitrogen gas bubble in the knee has a volume of 0.0125 mL when the diver begins to ascend from a depth of 105 feet where the pressure is 4.15 atm and the temperature is 10.5 degrees Celsius. Show how to determine and then calculate the volume of this nitrogen gas bubble in mL at the surface where the pressure is 0.998 atm and the temperature is 29.5 degrees Celsius. You may assume that the number of moles of nitrogen gas in the bubble is constant. Use the factor label method where applicable. Round off to significant digits.

Step 1

When the deep-sea diver rises to the surface,the pressure decreases along with an increase in temperature, so the volume of the formed bubble also increases due to the combined effect of both.
