Compressibility

compressibilityCompressibility, abbreviated as \(\beta \) (Greek symbol beta), also known as coefficient of compressibility, measures the change in volume under external forces for any liquid.

compressibility formula

\(\large{ \beta = - \frac{1}{V} \; \frac{\partial \; V}{ \partial \; p}  }\)

Where:

\(\large{ \beta }\)  (Greek symbol beta) = compressibility

\(\large{ \partial \; p }\) = pressure (the rate of change)

\(\large{  V }\) = volume

\(\large{ \partial \; V }\) = volume (the rate of change)
