Homework Help: Calculate the Volume at this pressure.

  1. Jun 7, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    One cubic metre of water is placed under an absolute pressure of 7000 kPa. Calculate the volume at this pressure.

    2. Relevant equations
    E = - dp / (dV/V)

    3. The attempt at a solution

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

    Solve the differential equation you have (relevant equation). E is the bulk modulus which is 2.2 gigaPa.
