Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The compressibility factor is also often confused with its reciprocal, the bulk modulus, which has the unit of a pressure. This confusion is rather common in the case of liquids. It's the modulus that increases with pressure, or rather with density, because molecules add their volume to the vacuum volume (perfect gas) occupied by the thermal movements, and molecules are stiffer. http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=46463.0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jeanetteBaker : actually i wanted to know that when we use bulk modulus and compressibility as parameter for comparing the relative compressible nature of fluid i.e for example may be for liquids we generally use bulk modulus and for gases generally we use compressibility like that thank u for ur reply
