You are swimming at the 2m deep end of the pool when you dropped your locker key. If you dive to the bottom, how much pressure in psi pushes against your eardrums?

Your eardrum ruptures at 5 psi. How deep can you dive before the pressure reaches 5 psi?

At 5 psi, how much force pushes on your eardrum, which has an area of 0.55 cm^2?


Answer: At 2m, P=2.8psi. At 5 psi, h=3.5m. At 5 psi, F on your eardrum is 2N
