The solubility of Nitrogen (N2) in blood at 37 degrees celsius and at partial pressure of 0.80 atm is 0.00056 mol/L.

The solubility of Nitrogen (N2) in blood at 37 degrees celsius and at partial pressure of 0.80 atm is 0.00056 mol/L.A deep-sea diver breathes compressed air with the partial pressure of N2 equal to 5 atm. Assume that the total volume of blood in the body is 5 L. Calculate the amount of N2 gas released (in liters at 37 degrees celsius 1 atm) when the diver returns to the surface of the water, where the partial pressure of N2 is 0.8 atm.
