Question: 

How much pressure is needed to compress the volume of an iron block by 0.10%? Express your answer in $\textrm{N/m}^2$, and compare it to atmospheric pressure $(1.0 \times 10^5 \textrm{ N/m}^2)$.

Quick Answer: 

$\Delta P = 9.0 \times 10^7 \textrm{ N/m}^2 \textrm{, } \dfrac{\Delta P}{P_a} = 9.0 \times 10^2 $
