A pparatus Basically,it is a personal device used to breath
underwater without relying on air from
the surface. Why dive? You probably know by now why scuba diving is so awesome. Check out this video if you have any doubts But, what does it all mean? All those funny words? Diving Terms -All your questions,
explained. Let's start with something simple. Diving Essentials -A fancy word for a "vest" worn
by a diver that helps control his
or her ability to float in the water 2)Regulator
-A mouthpiece attached to a hose
connected to one's air tank
(this is how a scuba diver can breathe!) -An exposure suit
that protects the
diver and keeps
them warm 3)Wetsuit 1)Buoyancy Compensator(BC) 4) Dive Computer -A snazzy wristwatch that
shows a diver
how long they
can dive, depth,
time spent diving,
and other things. 5) Mask and fins -Exactly the same as fins and masks for swimming, but a little bit more advanced. 6) Weight belt -Belt worn around waist.
Allows diver to offset their
body's desire to float up
because of their wetsuit. 7) The right
attitude! -Divers should be adventurous,
excited, and ready to learn
about the wonderful
underwater world! Buoyancy Obviously, it's pretty important 1)Positive buoyancy:
The tendency of a diver
to float upward when in water. 2) Negative buoyancy:
The tendency of a diver
to sink when in water. 3)Neutral buoyancy:
The tendency to neither sink nor float while in water. So, to
stay in the same place. This is
desired for good diving!! Conclusion -There's a lot more I could
explain, but for now I'll leave you with this: the ocean is crazy awesome.
Scuba diving is easy to learn.
Just take the plunge and Dive in.
