volume as a function of pressue when liquid is compressed.

Please see attached file for full problem description.

9) when pressure is applied to a liquid, its volume decreases. Assuming that the isothermal compressibility is independent of pressure, derive an expression for the volume as a function of pressure.

10. calculate alpha and the isothermal compressibility KT
i) for an ideal gas
ii) for a gas for which P(Vm - b) = RT
