I am having a little trouble on this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can I treat this as an Isobaric expansion and an Isothermal compression? For Water at [tex]25^{\circ}C[/tex], (Volume Expansion Coefficient) [tex]\beta = 2.57 * 10^{-4}K^{-1} [/tex] and (Isothermal Compressibility) [tex]\kappa = 4.52*10^{-10}Pa^{-1}[/tex]. Suppose you increase the temperature of some water from [tex]20^{\circ}C[/tex] to [tex]30^{\circ}C[/tex]. How much Pressure must you apply to prevent it from expanding?

I think I found the change in Volume like this: [tex]\frac{\Delta V}{V_{0}}=\beta\Delta T[/tex]

How do I find the Pressure?
