Masks with side lenses at corrected angles are popular, but there is always a distorted area where the planes of the lenses change, which can lead to distorted visual images. For example, a fish swimming across a diver’s line of vision may be seen out of the side panel, but as it gets closer it may disappear from view or may appear to bend as it comes into view on the front panel. Additionally, some of the newer clear skirts and side windows permit light to come into the mask from the side and reflect off the inside of the lens and back into the diver’s eyes, causing some loss of acuity.

Boyle’s law states: At constant temperature, the volume is inversely proportional to the absolute pressure: P1 V1 = P2 V2 A corollary to this law states that density (mass/volume) increases directly with the pressure. 5 bar Converting to gauge pressure: What is the physical volume (in cubic feet) of an aluminum “80” scuba cylinder? 7 psia). 7 psia). 7 psia) V2 Solving for V2 : Thus, a scuba cylinder with a gauge pressure of 200 bar at 25°C heated to 42°C will show a gauge pressure of about 212 bar.
