1.50. CHAPTER 1, PROBLEM 50 51 1.50 Chapter 1, Problem 50 Problem: Assuming temperature is 15.6 o C, compute the fractional change in density, ρ / ρ , for air and water caused by a change in pressure, p =0 . 25 atm. The initial pressure is p =1 atm. Solution: As noted in the text, in terms of compressibility, τ , the fractional change in density is given by ρ ρ = τ p The given pressure change is p = 0.25 atm = 25.25 kPa = 2.525
