ABSTRACT
The article offers information on how to determine surface air consumption (SAC) when diving. It states that SAC or surface gas consumption (SCG) refers to the gas rate usage expressed in pounds per square inch (psi) or pressure bars. It mentions that SAC can be determined by calculating the amount gas consumed every minute of swimming. It also discusses the steps on in calculating SAC with different operating pressure or size of diving tank. INSET: USE LESS AIR.
