Ping Pong Balls for buoyancy


(Richard) #1

Anyone know the survivability of a ping pong ball going deep?

Richard,

There’s a post about exactly this question over on Stack Exchange:

Looks like the answer is that they crush around 30m.

Best,

Rusty

Yeah, I had looked at that before the post. I was hoping for some emperical data. I’ll send some down and see what happens.

A ping pong ball took a ride down to 90 feet today on my ROV. It came back unscathed.
