Question

The compressibility of water is 4×105 per unit atmospheric pressure. The decrease in volume of 100 cm3 of water under a pressure of 100 atmosphere will be
  1. 0.4 cm3
  2. 0.4 ×105 cm3
  3. 0.04 cm3
  4. 0.025 cm3


Solution

The correct option is A 0.4 cm3
Formula for compressibility
β=ΔvvP , Here P=100 atm
β=4×105 /atm
v=100×106 m3
Hence, Δv=0.4 cm3
