If water is compressed under isothermic conditions, does the entropy of the system become less?

    Yes it does, remember entropy measures how ordered the system is, its also to do with the degrees of freedom of a molecule, by compressing the liquid you are limiing the degrees of freedom of the molecules on the liquid thus decreasing the entropy of the system! The more ordered the system is the less entropy it has!

    by way of asserting that water is 'incompressible' i think of we only mean that it might take an extremely great volume of tension to compress it, and that that's not feasible to do on earth without particular equipment or some thing. The gravitational tension from black holes is so somewhat extensive, that it could compress exceedingly lots something. in certainty, it comes right down to the quantity of tension you are able to exert on some thing. Black holes can exert a hell of a extensive one, because of the fact they are so massive. The regulations of physics do not substitute, in case you are able to desire to supply adequate tension you are able to compress water, anyplace that's.
