The volume of a spherical body is decreased by10–3 % when it is subjected to pressure of 40 atmospheres. Find the bulk modulus of body.
(1 Atmosphere pressure =1.01x105 N/m2).
Volume of a spherical body decreased = 10-3 %
Pressure, P = 40 atm
Percentage change in volume is given by 10-3 %
is the bulk modulus of the body.
Inter-atomic or inter-molecular forces are electrostatic in nature.
