Usage

  air
  is.air(g)

Arguments

g

An object of class "gas".

Details

An object of class "gas" represents a breathing gas. Such objects are required for various calculations in the scuba library.

The dataset air represents compressed air (21% oxygen, 79% nitrogen) as a breathing gas. It is equivalent to nitrox(0.21).

The function is.air expects its argument g to be a gas object. It returns TRUE if g is equivalent to air, and FALSE otherwise.
