Chapter 13 MOMENTUM ANALYSIS OF FLOW SYSTEMS Newton’s Laws and Conservation of Momentum 13-1C Mass, energy, momentum, and electric charge are conserved, and volume and entropy are not conserved during a process. 13-2C Newton’s first law states that “ a body at rest remains at rest , and a body in motion remains in motion at the same velocity in a straight path when the net force acting on it is zero .” Therefore, a body tends to preserve its state or inertia. Newton’s second law states that “ the acceleration of a body is proportional to the net force acting on it and is inversely proportional to its mass. ” Newton’s third law states “ when a body exerts a force on a second body, the second body exerts an equal and opposite force on the first .” 13-3C Since momentum ( V m ) is the product of a vector (velocity) and a scalar (mass), momentum must be a vector that points in the same direction as the velocity vector. 13-4C The conservation of momentum principle is expressed as “the momentum of a system remains constant when the net force acting on it is zero, and thus the momentum of such systems is conserved”. The momentum of a body remains constant if the net force acting on it is zero. 13-5C Newton’s second law of motion, also called the angular momentum equation, is expressed as “ the rate of change of the angular momentum of a body is equal to the net torque acting it .” For a non-rigid body with zero net torque, the angular momentum remains constant, but the angular velocity changes in accordance with I = constant where I is the moment of inertia of the body. 13-6C No. Two rigid bodies having the same mass and angular speed will have different angular momentums unless they also have the same moment of inertia I . Linear Momentum Equation 13-7C The relationship between the time rates of change of an extensive property for a system and for a control volume is expressed by the Reynolds transport theorem, which provides the link between the system and control volume concepts. The linear momentum equation is obtained by setting V b and thus V m B in the Reynolds transport theorem. 13-8C The forces acting on the control volume consist of body forces that act throughout the entire body of the control volume (such as gravity, electric, and magnetic forces) and surface forces that act on the control surface (such as the pressure forces and reaction forces at points of contact). The net force acting on a control volume is the sum of all body and surface forces. Fluid weight is a body force, and pressure is a surface force (acting per unit area). 13-9C All of these surface forces arise as the control volume is isolated from its surroundings for analysis, and the effect of any detached object is accounted for by a force at that location. We can minimize the number of surface forces exposed by choosing the control volume such that the forces that we are not interested in remain internal, and thus they do not complicate the analysis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
