# Bulk Modulus MCQs with Answers

## Bulk Modulus MCQs

The modulus of elasticity related to a change in the volume is bulk modulus (k).

Let volume V is subjected to an additional pressure dP, The increase in pressure will produce a decrease in its volume dV.

∴ Volume stress = Change in pressure

= dP Bulk modulus is defined as the ratio of the volume stress to the volume strain. Q.1) Modulus of elasticity associated with the change in volume is knows as…

a) Young’s modulus

b) Bulk modulus

c) Modulus of rigidity

d) None of these

Q.2) Bulk modulus is applicable for…..

a) solids

b) liquids

c) gases

d) all of above
