SIGNIFICANCE? square4 Fluids play a vital role in our lives: o Breathing air, flow of blood in our veins arteries o Flow of water in our everyday life o Energy generation through water, gas and wind turbines o Wheather prediction o aircraft, missiles and rockets o application of the principles of fluid mechanics is virtually required in analysing and designing any system in which fluid is a working medium.

square4 What is a difference between a fluid and a solid ? o In solids, the intermolecular forces are rather large, and relative positions of molecules are fixed in space. o Fluid molecules are rather mobile. Fluid particles – a chunk of fluid molecules- move easily and change their relative position. square4 Fluid is such a substance that will continuously deform under the action of a shear stress . square4 That is, any substance you can stick your finger in is a fluid. square4 A solid on the other hand can resist a shear stress provided the shear stress force does not exceed the elastic limit of the material. Ex: moving wall and fluid.

    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.
