P2_14 Gasolina

Conan Murgatroyd, Charlie Kinsman, Dan Mott, James Stinton


This paper determines the effects of gasoline and water compression on the travel time of a Bathyscaphe vessel as it descends to the bottom of the Mariana’s Trench and rises to the surface again. The mean velocities of the vessel as it sinks and rises were calculated to be v_(avg sink) = 0.65 m/s and v_(avg rise) = 1.44 m/s respectively. The time taken to reach the bottom is 4 hours and 41 minutes; the time to rise to the surface is 2 hours and 7 minutes.
