PHYSICS 1Calculus-BasedTopic 10 – Fluids at RestMath and Physics DepartmentTIP - Manila
States of MatterSolidHas a definite volume and shapeLiquidHas a definite volume but not a definite shapeGas – unconfinedHas neither a definite volume nor shapeAll of these definitions are somewhat artificial.More generally, the time it takes a particular substance to change itsshape in response to an external force determines whether thesubstance is treated as a solid, liquid or gas.IntroductionMath and Physics DepartmentTIP - Manila
FluidsA fluid is a collection of molecules that are randomlyarranged and held together by weak cohesiveforces and by forces exerted by the walls of acontainer.Both liquids and gases are fluids.IntroductionMath and Physics DepartmentTIP - Manila

Fluids properties4. Specific Volume - is the volume occupied by a unit mass offluid. It is the reciprocal of density.5. Viscosity – is the measure of the fluid’s resistance to flow whenacted upon by an external force.6. Bulk modulus - is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to uniformcompression or compressibilityCompressibility is the fractional change in the volume of a fluid perunit change in pressure at constant temperature process.Section14.1Math and Physics DepartmentTIP - Manila
Fluids properties7. Surface Tension - is the property of the fluid which offersresistance at the membrane or skin that forms on the free surface
