PHYSICS OF PRESSURE AND DIVING 3 Abstract This paper is based on how physics is directly related to pressure and scuba diving. In the article “The pressure of Scuba Diving” provided by Science News for students, pressure and its effects are briefly discussed. In this paper an overview of multiple kinds of pressures will be discussed that scuba divers encounter. These types of pressures can also be referenced in Chapter 11: Fluid Statistics, from the text book College Physics. Keywords: Pressure, Atmospheric Pressure, Hydrostatic Pressure, Absolute Pressure

PHYSICS OF PRESSURE AND DIVING 4 The Physics of Pressure and Diving Pressure is a force acting on a unit area or stated as a formula Pressure = force / area (P = F / A) ( OpenStax College ) . At sea level, every square inch of your body has 14.7 pounds of air pressure pressing down on it and underwater it is the opposite with water being 800 times denser than air, making it much heavier.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
