How large a pressure increase (in ATM) must be applied to water if it is to be compressed in volume by 1%? The bulk modulus of water is 2 × 109 N/m2 and 1 ATM = 105 N/m2

• Physics -

Pressure-bulkmodulus*.001

• Physics -

why 0.001? 1/100 is 0.01. I thought that was 1 %. Also is that pressure minus (-) or pressure (equals)?
