Fluid Matter that cannot maintain its own shape and therefore flows readily under the influence of forces Gases – Do not maintain their size (volume) Liquids – Do maintain their size – “incompressible” Solids maintain both their size and shape under the influence of forces
Density Which is heavier, wood or iron? Amount of mass per unit volume Compressible - Density easily altered Incompressible - Density varies only slightly or not at all. Specific Gravity - ratio of the density of a material to that of water m V ρ = 2 H O 3 3 g kg 1 1000 cm m ρ = =
