  Ok, what happens to an object, let's say a cube, is pressured on all sides equally?  If you don't know what I mean I will explain further, just ask.  I mean it can't crumple, or change shape... so what happens... ( And obviously it would become denser but only to a certain point.


Thankyou!

It would be best if you explain further now. Otherwise, you are unlikely to get a meaningful answer.

Geezer are you that tired? [:o)] Just kidding!!!

If I may use my imagination and not expected to display proof because it may be so obvious and redundant?
Oh geeze I didit anyways... [:I]

Instead of using a solid cube, I know it was not mentioned it were solid, nature provides a shape that accomodated equal pressure at any area along its external surface. Use a sphere made of the some compound material all the way to its center.

With enough of even external pressure inwards, there can be a difference in temperature from the center outwards.
The earths core for instance.

Now look a Jupiter, a gas giant, it is believed that the core is made of metallic hydrogen.

Man made force can not compare here, but the question did not ask that either.
An approximately spherically even inward, man made instantaneous force under special circumstances may produce a fusion fission reaction.
Turning this into quite an explosive question...

Given enough pressure on your sphere, would you not expect a black hole to be the end result?

Wow, thanks... it just hit me... what would happen.  So now that I have an answer, Thankyou!

Yep missed that extreme squish.
