Could you please show me how to do the problem attached? Thank you.

The isothermal compressibility K_T and the adiabatic compressibility K_S are defined by

K_T = - 1/V(derivative V derivative p)_T and K_S = - 1/V (derivative V derivative p)_s,

where the symbolbs have their usual meanings. Show that K_S/K_p = 1/ gamma where gamma is the ratio of principal specific heats.
