About water incompressibility

  1. Jun 30, 2010 #1

    I want to know how much does the volume of a body of water gets smaller per unit of pressure increase, assuming volume is in [itex]m^3[/itex] and pressure in Pa (or N/m^2).

    And another thing, can the force which the liquid (water) exerts outward opposing compression be calculated?

    I hope you understood my question. I'm asking them out of curiosity, nothing else :P.
