33.03 feet sea water = 1 Atmosphere pressure = 14.7 psi

34.03 feet fresh water = 1 Atmosphere pressure = 14.7 psi

or or

= pressure in psi

= volume in ft3

= moles of gas (1 mole = 6.022 x 1023 atoms)

= gas constant 10.7316 psi ft3 / lbmol °R

= temperature in Rankine (°R) = °F + 459.6

Sea water weighs 64.58 lbs/ft3 or 8.6213 lbs/gallon Specific gravity = 1.035

Fresh water weighs 62.4 lbs/ft3 or 8.3303 lbs/gallon Specific gravity = 1.000

Bouyant Force (Archemedes Principle):

is the buoyant force

also known as dry weight

is weight in water [remember that negative numbers are positively buoyant]

is the density of the liquid [salt water is 64.58 lbs/ft3 and fresh water is 62.4 lbs/ft3]

is the gravitational acceleration 32.37 ft/sec2 (normally written as 1 in the equation i.e. 1 gravity)

is the volume of the object in cubic feet (ft3)

For calculating the tissue depth for Haldanean decompression M-values, an easy to remember formula is:

= the final tissue depth

= actual dive depth

= time underwater

= halftime compartment

I have written a function for the R language which calculates the EAD, PO2 and working depth for any FO2 breathing gas blend.

You can find my simple function here: http://quashnick.net/scuba/university/Nitrox_for_R.txt

A better option is to use the R-Project (http://r-project.org) Package called scuba. You can find it here: http://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Descriptions/scuba.html
