### How deep in water is 10atm of pressure?

Every 10 meters deep, the pressure increases by one atmosphere,
approximately. Therefore, at 90 meters depth you would have,
approximately, a pressure of 10 atm. (that is absolute
pressure).

### Where are most of the gas molecules found in the atmosphere?

The higher you go above the surface of the earth, the lower the
air pressure is, and consequently the less gas molecules your will
find within a given volume. Most of the gas molecules in the
atmosphere are found below an altitude of 3 kilometers (3000
meters) above sea level.

###### Asked in Elements and Compounds

### What will be the volume of a cylinder at one atmosphere if it occupies a nitrogen gas of volume 6 cubic meter at a pressure of 150 newton per sqmeter?

Your question makes little sense.
If a cylinder holds 6 cubic meters of nitrogen at one atmosphere
pressure the volume of the cylinder is 6 cubic meters.
However as 150 newtons per squsre meter = 150 Pascals =
0.001480384754 atmospheres, if you took 6 cubic meters of nitrogen
at this pressure and then increased the pressure to 1 atmosphere
the volue would shrink (because the volume of a gas is inversely
proportional to the pressure) from 6 cubic meters to 0.008882308524
cubic meters.
