Volume Differential

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Volume differential, abbreviated as \(\Delta V\), is the difference between an expanded or reduced volume of a liquid.

Volume Differential Formula

\(\large{  \Delta V = V_f -  V_i   }\)

\(\large{ V_c =   \frac {p \; V_i}{ K}     }\)       

Where:

\(\large{ \Delta V }\) = volume differential

\(\large{ K }\) = bulk modulus

\(\large{ V_c }\) = change in volume (volume differential)

\(\large{ V_i }\) = initial volume

\(\large{ V_f }\) = final volume

\(\large{ p  }\) = pressure

Solve for:

\(\large{ p = K \; \frac{V_c}{V_i} }\)

\(\large{ V_i =  K\;  \frac {V_c}{ p}     }\)

\(\large{ K =  p\; \frac{V_i}{ V_c}  }\)
