      Hello @Kremella

      For most practical applications liquids are considered incompressible.

      Hi @prajput

      So you're saying they don't have any compressibility?

      No, Liquids do have little compressibility but as mentioned it can be safely assumed to be incompressible. Compressibility of fluid is the measure of volume change due to pressure changes. Compressibility is related to thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
