Algebra Applications: Rational Functions, Segment 1: Submarines

In spite of their massive size, submarines are precision instruments. A submarine must withstand large amounts of water pressure; otherwise, a serious breach can occur. Rational functions are used to study the relationship between water pressure and volume. Students graph rational functions to study the forces at work with a submarine.
