What is the difference between Co2 compressible and Co2 incompressible?
Gasses are compressible and liquids and solids are incompressible. Using this information one can surmise that CO2 compressible would be the gas phase of CO2 and CO2 incompressible would be the solid (dry ice) phase of CO2. ...

What are the similarity's of Pneumatic and Hydraulic?
One similarity is that they both use fluids. Both gasses and liquids are fluids. the two are also compressible. ...

Why is it possible to compress a syringe filled with air and not a syringe filled with water?
All gasses and vapors are compressible, whereas liquids and solids are not compressible to any useful extent. The compressibility of gasses is due to the much greater spacing of its molecules than would exist in its liquid or solid state; in fact, if you compress a gas far enough, it will eventually become a liquid, and then a solid. The compressibility of gasses is a very useful property that allows us to run machinery and to make aerosol sprays. ...

Can water be compressed into a smaller volume?
Yes it can. Particularly when it contains dissolved gasses which significantly increase it's compressibility. Water without dissolved gasses is also compressible however it takes a significant pressure to cause even small amounts of compressive strain. ...
