Pressure increases with ocean depth



At sea level, the air that surrounds us presses down on our bodies at 14.7 pounds per square inch (1 bar). You don't feel it because the fluids in your body are pushing outward with the same force.

Dive down into the ocean even a few feet, though, and a noticeable change occurs. You can feel an increase of pressure on your eardrums. This is due to an increase in hydrostatic pressure, the force per unit area exerted by a liquid on an object.

The deeper you go under the sea, the greater the pressure of the water pushing down on you. For every 33 feet (10 meters) you go down, the pressure increases by 14.7 psi (1 bar). In the deepest ocean, the pressure is equivalent to the weight of an elephant balanced on a postage stamp, or the equivalent of one person trying to support 50 jumbo jets!

O.o

Synchy post.

I see 14.7 777

And elephant.


How could one experience the effects of deep sea diving while above the surface?

Did this resonate with anyone?

I believe Fringe noted the 'pressure' on the ears as well, some days ago.

Not the rings...but those too. Perhaps they are induced by the pressure. It does feel like squeezing.
