The qustion should be rephrased to "What is the DENSITY of air at 15 psi." Volume is independent of mass, i.e. one cubic foot is one cubic foot regardless of pressure. Density refers to how much mass there is per unit volume. At 15 psi or, more accurately 14.7 psi, (atmospheric pressure at sea level) the density of air is 0.0805 pounds per cubic foot (pcf). Not much. This is commonly called one "atmosphere." Compare that with 62.4 pcf for fresh water and about 64 pcf for sea water. I ran some quick numbers and found that for each 33 feet of sea water depth the pressure increases by one atmosphere (14.7 psi.) The common recreational dive depth limit of 60 feet corresponds to just under 3 atmospheres, including 27 psi water pressure plus 14.7 air pressure above the water for a total of about 42 psi.

How much air pressure is in a human body?

There is no air pressure, as such, in the human body. We are at an equilibrium with the atmospheric pressure, which is a little under 15psi. This is why astronauts need space suits when performing a space walk. Their suit maintains the internal pressure of the suit at about 15psi. If the human body were directly exposed to space (near vacuum), the fluids in the body would boil and out-gas into space.

Does Air have a volume?

Yes. Air is a gas, gasses are fluids, and fluids have volume.


Does air have volume?

Air, like any other gas, has volume. When you blow air into a balloon, the air takes the shape of the balloon. If more air is blown in, the balloon becomes larger as the volume of the air is increased. If some of the air is released, the balloon becomes smaller as the volume of the air is decreased.
