Based upon an actual volume (displacement) flow requirement of 1.4 acfm for a deep-sea diver, the compressor capacity is sufficient to support the working and standby divers at 130 fsw.
Sample Problem 3. Find the actual cubic feet of air contained in a 700-cubic inch internal volume cylinder pressurized to 3,000 psi.
1. Simplify the equation by eliminating the variables that will not change. The temperature of the tank will not change so T and T2 can be eliminated from the formula in this problem:
P1V1 = P2V2
2. Rearrange the formula to solve for the initial volume:
