# Haemoglobin maths question

#1

Scientists measured the oxygen carrying capacity of seal blood.
They found the haemoglobin in a 190 kg seal contained 1.07 × 104 cm3 oxygen.
When the seal dived, it used 5.2 cm3 oxygen per minute per kg of body mass.

Use this information to calculate the maximum number of minutes the seal can remain under water. Assume that all of the oxygen attached to the haemoglobin is released during the dive.
