Tank Volume

 

Tank Volume Calculator

This script calculates the volume of gas (CU. FT. @ 1 atm) in a tank of a given rating (CU.FT at PSI) when it contains a given pressure (PSI).
 
WARNING!
THESE ARE NOT DIVE TABLES!
DO NOT USE THIS INFORMATION FOR DIVE PLANNING!
Seek professional advice before using this information!  

If a tank rated at  CU. FT. at  PSI contains  PSI, it contains:

    CU. FT. of gas.  

Volume of Gas = (PSI in Tank) * (Tank's Rated Volume)/(Tank's Rated Pressure)  



*********************************************
*********************************************

SAC Calculator

 

Surface Air Consumption Calculator

This script calculates a diver's SAC rate, in Cubic Feet per Minute, based on average depth, length of time at that depth, how many PSI of gas were used, and the size of the tank.

The calculation is performed by calculating the volume of gas used  (PSI used * ( Tank volume rating / Tank  pressure rating )), dividing this by the time at depth,  then dividing this result by the pressure at the average depth ((D/33)+1). This result is the Surface Air Consumption (SAC).
 
WARNING!
THESE ARE NOT DIVE TABLES!
DO NOT USE THIS INFORMATION FOR DIVE PLANNING!
Seek professional advice before using this information!  

Time at Depth (Minutes)  Average Depth (feet)  PSI used (PSI) 

 

Tank volume rating (CU.FT.)  Tank pressure rating (PSI) 

 
 

You consumed CU.FT. of gas, and your SAC is CU.FT/Min.

Gas Consumption

 

Gas Consumption Calculator

This script calculates a divers theoretical gas consumption based on his SAC (CU.FT./Min.),  dive time (Min.),  and depth (Ft.).
 
WARNING!
THESE ARE NOT DIVE TABLES!
DO NOT USE THIS INFORMATION FOR DIVE PLANNING!
Seek professional advice before using this information!

If your SAC is  and you spend  minutes at  feet, then then you would theoretically consume:
 

CU.FT. of gas. 

 
  Gas Consumption = SAC * time * ((Depth/33)+1)



*********************************************
*********************************************
MOD Calculator

 

MOD Calculator
Maximum Operating Depth

This script calculates a MOD based on a mix (FO2) and max. po2 (PO2).

 
WARNING!
THESE ARE NOT DIVE TABLES!
DO NOT USE THIS INFORMATION FOR DIVE PLANNING!
Seek professional advice before using this information!  

If your FO2 is  and your max. PO2 is , then your MOD is:    feet.     MOD = 33*((PO2/FO2)-1)



*********************************************
*********************************************
Gas Partial Pressure Calculator

 

Gas Partial Pressure Calculator

This script calculates the partial pressure (ata.) of a gas, given its fraction of the total gas, and the depth (feet).

 
WARNING!
THESE ARE NOT DIVE TABLES!
DO NOT USE THIS INFORMATION FOR DIVE PLANNING!
Seek professional advice before using this information!  

If the fraction of gas is and the depth is  feet, then the partial pressure of that gas is:
    ata.     PPG = FOG * ((D/33)+1)   Note: If the fraction of the gas is 1.00, then this script calculates the ambient pressure at a given depth.
