under a liquid one understands a material, which opposes as well as none, a variation in volume however a quite large resistance to a deformation, i.e. the material is almost incompressible. Liquids are thus volume steady and form inconsistant. This condition becomesliquid state of aggregation mentioned.
The liquid condition is not alone material specific, separates depends also on outside factors like the temperature and the pressure . If such a liquid changes its state of aggregation, then one speaks of a phase conversion, whereby the term that Phase a over term to the state of aggregation represents.
With the gases the liquids are combined into the fluids.
The bulk modulus is a measure for the adiabatic volume elasticity,that means for „the compressibility “of a liquid.
Many characteristics of liquids can be simulated by molecular dynamics.
Liquids practice on the wall of theContainer in that they are a hydrostatic pressure out, for example the water pressure. Resting liquids are physically mainly characterized with this pressure. If one exerts pressure on liquids from the outside, then the pressure distributes itself evenly in thatwhole liquid.
The more deeply one a body into a liquid dips, the more largely becomes the hydrostatic pressure on the body. This depends however not only on the submerged depth, but also on the density of the liquid.
Into flowing liquids stepadditional sizes up, which are described by the fluid dynamics.
