How Boyle's Law effects scuba diving
When I scuba dive, why do you think I have to wear an oxygen tank?
When you go deeper into water pressure increases,
Oh. So that's why when I swim in my pool it always hurts my ears.
Boyle's law is the relationship between pressure and volume. When you go deeper in water, the pressure increases.
Underwater, scuba divers have tiny bubbles of nitrogen dissolved in their blood. However, if the divers come up too quickly, the pressure decreases and the bubbles expand. (painfully)
I think I understand it. So when you scuba dive, you always need to wear an air tank otherwise It can be very painful.
Just remember that when volume goes up pressure goes down. The formula is P1V1=P2V2
I should always wear an air tank when scuba diving, and be very careful because it can be very painful if you don't
