How do i find density of air used in a heave motion compensator? Do i need any special formula or i use the formula for density of dry air?

R=8.314Jmol-1K-1.

    Air is pretty close to an ideal gas but you are getting up there in pressure.

    calculate the density using the ideal gas equation and then check it other published data.

    this looks like about 240 kg/m^3.  I used the 7C line as they didn't have one for 10C.

    For some strange reason most heaving occurs on the starboard side and over the rail. Many Very large ships have a heave motion compensator but they are very expensive. Heaving overboard does not alter air density. You can switch to Prosobee or any other formula.

    Too much heaving will dehydrate you.
