A scuba diver is $40 \text{~m}$ below the surface of a lake, where the temperature is $5.0^{\circ} \text{C}$. He releases an air bubble that has a volume of $15 \text{~cm}^3$. The bubble rises to the surface, where the temperature is $25^{\circ} \text{C}$. Assume that the air in the bubble is always in thermal equilibrium with the surrounding water, and assume that there is no exchange of molecules between the bubble and the surrounding water. What is the volume of the bubble right before it breaks the surface? *Hint: Remember that the pressure also changes.*

Solution

VerifiedIn this problem, following values are given:

$\begin{align*} \text{Volume of the bubble},\ V&=15\text{~cm}^3\\ &=15\cdot10^{-6}\text{~m}^3\\ \text{Atmosphere pressure},\ P_a&=1\text{~atm}\\ &=1.103\cdot 10^5\text{~Pa}\\ T_1=5^0\text{C}&=278\text{~K}\\ T_2=25^0\text{C}&=298\text{~K} \end{align*}$

We need to find the volume of the bubble.
