Question

The human lungs can function satisfactorily up to a limit where the pressure difference between the outside and inside of the lungs is 1/22 of an atmosphere. If a diver uses a snorkel for breathing, how far below the water can she swim? Assume the diver is in salt water whose density is 1045 kg/m3.
