  At 26.0 m below the surface of the sea (density = 1 025 kg/m3), where the temperature is 5.00°C, a diver exhales an air bubble having a volume of 1.10 cm3. If the surface temperature of the sea is 20.0°C, what is the volume of the bubble just before it breaks the surface in centimeters?

Question

At 26.0 m below the surface of the sea (density = 1 025 kg/m3), where the temperature is 5.00°C, a diver exhales an air bubble having a volume of 1.10 cm3. If the surface temperature of the sea is 20.0°C, what is the volume of the bubble just before it breaks the surface in centimeters?

Step 1

The expression for the final volume from ideal gas law,
