Intro to Pressure Video Lessons

Concept

Problem: When water freezes, its volume increased by 9.05% (that is ΔV/V0 = 9.05 × 10–2). What force per unit area is water capable of exerting on a container when it freezes? (It is acceptable to use the bulk modulus of water in this problem.)

Bulk modulus:

$\overline{){\mathbf{B}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{P}}{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{V}}{{\mathbf{V}}_{\mathbf{0}}}}}$, where P is pressure and V is volume.

ΔP = B(ΔV/V0)
