In a design for a piece of medical apparatus, you need a material that is easily compressed when a pressure is applied to it.

Would this material have a large bulk modulus, small bulk modulus, or is the bulk modulus not relevant to this situation?

• Physics -

Pressure= bulkmodulus*deltaV

Easily compressed means big deltaV, so bulk modules has to be small.

• Physics -

large bulk modulus
