compressing air using water

Postby drl422000@yahoo.com » Tue Apr 12, 2005 10:50 pm

If I was to take a bucket--flip it over and stick it in a body of water.
Upon pushing it domn the air inside the bucket would compress because water is not compressable. How deep would one have to get the bucket in order to double the air pressure?

About 33 feet of salt water, 34 feet of fresh water.
