1 litre at 10 ATA (90 metres). During ascent into the atmosphere, the reverse happens and the gas expands. 25 ATA (an altitude of about 10 300 metres or 33 400 feet). Gas volumes expand when pressure decreases and contract when pressure increases. 2). It should be noted that volume changes are greatest near the surface. Conversely, gas has to be added if the volume of a container or gas space is to remain constant as the pressure is increased. The effects of this law are important in many aspects of diving medicine.

Unencumbered by bulky equipment, the diver is free to move weightlessly and silently in the underwater world. Practised in some societies for thousands of years, free diving in its simplest form requires no equipment at all. The introduction of various p ­erformance-enhancing apparatus such as face masks, fins, weight belts, buoyancy vests and thermal protection suits may present new problems. For example, the addition of goggles or face masks allows for clear vision but introduces a gas space that must be ‘equalized’ to prevent barotrauma.
