Optimal Nitrox Mixture For Given Depth

Description

Computes the optimal nitrox mixture for a given maximum depth.

Usage

1
 maxmix(depth, ppO2max=1.4)

Arguments

depth

the maximum depth, in metres

ppO2max

maximum permitted partial pressure of oxygen in atmospheres absolute

Details

Computes the maximum fraction of oxygen in a nitrox mixture subject to the constraint that the partial pressure of oxygen does not exceed ppO2max atmospheres.

Value

The optimal nitrox mixture. An object of class "gas".

Warnings

Not applicable to altitude dives. Not applicable to gas mixtures other than nitrox (oxygen-nitrogen mixtures).
