How the humans takes oxygen underwater in scuba diving?

Hello, Science enthusiasts, today I am here to explain you about the diving. Once again I repeat this was diving not driving. You may hear this word when you swim into deeper of the ocean. They perform the scuba diving to go into deeper of the ocean.

Many of us love swimming. Generally, we swim in the artificial swimming pools. Which consists of chemicals. But swimming in the Oceans is a Thrill. Anyone of you swims in the Oceans? If so, you were the lucky people than me because till know I did not swim in any Ocean.

Once imagine, that you are swimming in an ocean. That was an amazing experience and Good feeling. Some people were also surf in the ocean. That was really an Adventure. We see some of the people swim under the water. Most of those people were the complete professionals, they swim in the oceans for longer depths. But did you any time arise a doubt that "How they consume oxygen under the water while they perform scuba diving?". Don't worry! I am here to

But did you any time arise a doubt that "How they consume oxygen under the water while they perform scuba diving?". Don't worry! I am here to explain to you that how it is possible to inhale oxygen while performing scuba diving move on...

What is the science behind consuming oxygen while performing the scuba diving:

We know that we can't survive without oxygen even for few minutes. We will die without oxygen. When we swim to the longer depth in oceans, we may approach many difficulties. Our body will become energy less. We might fall into sleep and become restless. We might get many biological problems and difficult to survive at underwater.

The art of swimming under the oceans is called as the diving but not driving OK!!. There are many types of diving like scuba diving etc.., The people who perform diving are called divers. Before they go under water they also take the gas tank with them which consists of some particular gasses. The gas present in the gas tank which is carried by the diver is off oxygen and helium.

The oxygen present in the gas tank is useful to breathe and helium present in the gas tank is used to maintain the temperature of the body in a particular diving suit worn by the diver. It extracts the more temperature from our body and maintains the temperature equal to the temperature outside the diver’s suit.


Thus some of the problems were avoided due to temperature under water. Here the diver’s suit maintains some heat in our body to survive for the cool temperature in underwater. Thus the divers can survive under the ocean.
