Let the radius of the cylinder be R then the pressure seen by the cylinder is given by . The longitudinal strain seen by the cylinder is . In other words . The pressure also causes a lateral strain dictated by the Poisson's ratio making the cylinder to widen (radius increases) given by . In other words,. We can now calculate the change in volume as,
