(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Gas A at 125KPa (abs) is compressed isothermally and gas B at 100kPa(abs) is compressed isentropically (Y = 1.4). Which gas is more compressible?

2. Relevant equations

Compressibilty = 1/bulk's modulus

Bulk's modulus = F/A/V/v or volume stress/volume strain

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure I'm using the right equation , ive also tried Q= w(Y-n)/(y-1), but for an adiabatic compression Q is always 0, so does that mean the isothermally compressed gas is more compressible??
