Unformatted text preview: 5. Let the volume of the expanded air sacs be Va and that of the fish with its air sacs collapsed be V . Then ρfish = mfish 3 = 1.08 g/cm V and ρw = mfish 3 = 1.00 g/cm . V + Va where ρw is the density of the water. This implies ρfish V = ρw (V + Va ) or (V + Va )/V = 1.08/1.00, which gives Va /(V + Va ) = 7.4%. ...
