See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Given Info

Aluminum sphere

Radius: 5m

Initial Pressure: 1atm

Final pressure: 0

New Radius (radius in space): ?

Formula Used

Where, B = Bulks Modulus

P = Pressure

V = Volume

Substituting Values

Let new radius of the sphere(in space) be x.

And therefore change in radius is x - 5 = 0.0000024m or 2.4
