make sure to make your decompression stops on the way to the surface
Does air resistance prevent the diver from moving in a straight line once she jumps from the platform?
It depends on how deep the diver goes, and what air blend the diver is breathing. There are dive tables that state how long a diver can stay at a certain depth before requiring decompression. The basic recreational diver typically breathes either air or Nitrox. There are separate dives tables for air and Nitrox.
Yes, there are several risks that can occur from this, one of the major ones is the possibility of rupturing something internally, which might end up leading to getting an air embolism. What is Air Embolsim? An air embolism, or more generally gas embolism, is a pathological condition caused by gas bubbles in a vascular system. The most common context is a human body, in which case it refers to gas bubbles in the bloodstream…
What should be used in order to prevent a duct mounted electric heater from being energized when the fan is not on?
Self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) has been developed to enable man to swim and stay underwater for long periods of time. A scuba diver carries metal tanks (that hold compressed air or a special mixture of breathing gases) on his back and wears a mask and fins. Breathing compressed air will damage the lungs. How can the compressed air be made safe to breathe? The diver breathes air from the tanks through a hose. The…
The correct method to decrease the incidence of air embolism associated with removal of a central line is to follow ALL standard procedures with removal of the line. Patients should be placed in a supine position, or even T-burg position. The occlusive dressing should be loosened and the suture removed. The patient should be asked to hold their breath when the line is removed quickly. Occlusive dressing is held over the line as it is…
Because that is what air is made of and scuba divers need to breath air. It is however possible to increase the amount of O2 in the gas mixture if you are trained to breath Nitrox as a scuba diver and if you are a technical diver to add other gases such as helium to the mix. Recreational diver however normally breath simply compressed air.
The answer is no, because a Cartesian diver requires an air pocket that can be compressed. By compressing this air pocket the air molecules get closer together and change the density of the vessel that they are in. This causes it to sink. candles do not have air pockets, so there would be nothing to compress.
