Boyle’s Law states that the volume of a gas varies inversely with the pressure of the gas if the temperature remains constant. At sea level, where atmospheric pressure is 14.7 lb/in^2, a balloon used for underwater rescues contains 50 ft^3 of air.

Find the volume of air in the balloon when a scuba diver descends to a depth of 100ft and fills the balloon, assuming that the temperature does not change. For each foot below sea level pressure increases by 0.44 lb/in^2.
