In statistical mechanics and thermodynamics the compressibility equation refers to an equation which relates the isothermal compressibility (and indirect the pressure) to the structure of the liquid. It reads:
Additional recommended knowledge
Using the Fourier representation of the Ornstein-Zernike equation the compressibility equation (1) can be rewritten in the form:
where h(r) and c(r) are the indirect and direct correlation functions respectively. The compressibility equation is one of the many integral equations in statistical mechanics.
