How does pressure affect water?
May 06, 2008 8:40PM
Some may be tempted to say that pressure has no effect on water at all; water cannot be compressed. But in practical situations, we have to account for the fact that water contains many gases and gas bubbles. It also contains other kinds of physical objects that are compressible. because of all these things in water, pressure will have a measurable (and very important) affect on water, depending on the situation at hand.
