Calculate the Volume at this pressure.

  1. Jun 7, 2012 #1
    One cubic metre of water is placed under an absolute pressure of 7000 kPa. Calculate the volume at this pressure.

    The answer is .99682 but I do not know how to get it. I believe that it has to do with Compressibility and Elasticity.

    are you sure they are not asking for specific volume? just look under the liquid water tables in your thermo book
