Textbook Problem

Objects deep beneath the surface of the ocean are subjected to extremely high pressures, as we saw in Topic 9. Some bacteria in these environments have adapted to pressures as much as a thousand times atmospheric pressure. How might such bacteria be affected if they were rapidly moved to the surface of the ocean?

To determine
The effect of pressure on the bacterium when it is moved to the surface.

Explanation

From Boyle’s law,

P1V

  • P is the pressure.
  • V is the volume.

Each bacterium can be assumed as gas molecule
