CIVL2131 Fluid Mechanics for Engineers Tutorial 1: Fluid Properties and Hydrostatics I (covering week 1-2) Note: Hydrostatics II (buoyancy & stability will be covered at the end of the semester) Part I: Fluid properties (week 1) 1) Describe the following quantities in primary and actual units. (a) Density, (b) Pressure, (c) Power, (d) Energy, (e) Mass, (f) Flow rate. 2) Determine which of the following equations are dimensionally homogeneous. a) F = ma, where a is acceleration, m is mass and F is a force. b) P ൌ ߩ݄݃ܣ , where P is pressure, g is acceleration due to gravity, and h is length scale, and A is an area. c) 3/2 2 3 2 Q CL gH , where Q is discharge, C is a pure number, L is length, g is acceleration due to gravity, and H is head. d) 2 2 V L L D g h f , where h L is measure of energy loss in meter , f is a dimensionless resistance coefficient, L is length, D is diameter, V is velocity, and g is acceleration due to gravity. (Ans: only b) is inhomogeneous) 3) Sketch a graph of shear stress ( ) versus strain ( du/dy

### What students are saying

• 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.
