Homework Help: Volume and Pressure

  1. Nov 30, 2011 #1
    Find the change in volume of 1.00 gallon of water when it's taken from the surface of the ocean (P0 = 1.00 atm) to a depth where the absolute pressure is P=251 atm. Bulk modulus of water = 2.10 x 10^9

    Hint: What does "bulk modulus" mean - what are it's units - can you relate these units to what changes in the situation?

    In general - when you get stuck, looking at the units in context of what you know about the problem can give you a starting point.
