Castor oil has a density of 956 kg/m3. If the speed of sound in castor oil is 1474 m/s, what is its adabatic bulk modulus? [Note 1.2 x 10**2 N/m2 = 120 N/(square meter)]

The bulk modulus is given by the equation,

$$B = \rho v^2$$

where,

$B = \text{adabatic bulk modulus}$

$\rho = \text{density}$

$v = \text{velocity}$

and therefore,

$$B = \rho v^2 = (956)(1474)^2 = 2.08 \times 10^9 \frac{N}{m^2}$$
