**Elasticity! Pressure!**

## Homework Statement

A cylindrical steel pressure vessel with volume 1.3m^3 is to be tested. The vessel is filled with water, then a piston at one end pushes until the pressure inside increases by 2000kPa, then suddenly a safety plug on the top bursts.

how many litres of water come out?

B=.02x10^10Pa

## Homework Equations

P1=P0+[tex]\rho[/tex]gh

P1=-B([tex]\Delta[/tex]V/V)

## The Attempt at a Solution

P1=P0+2000kPa

[tex]\Delta[/tex]V=-V(P1/B)=-1.3(P0+2000/.2x10^10)m^3

please i need help... i got no idea where to go from now... i don't have density, or a height, or youngs modulus of steel?? please can someone help?
