Fluids What is a fluid ? Anything that flows / take the shape of its container: blood, air, lava Uses of fluids: hydraulic lift barometer blood pressure airplane flight sports We will discuss incompressible fluids Instead of mass and force use density and pressure

Density Which one of the following objects has the largest mass? a) a iron solid cube with each side of length r b) an ice solid sphere of radius r c) an iron solid cylinder of height r and radius r d) an ice solid cube with each side of length r e) an iron solid sphere of radius r

Pressure Use a mechanical sensor to illustrate/define pressure Δ p = Δ F Δ A Δ A 0 p = F A Units: N/m 2 = Pa (Pascal) Air Pressure We live at the bottom of a “sea” p 0 =14.7 lbs/in 2 (psi) ~ 760 mm Hg (torr) ~ 1.01E5 Pa What happens to pressure as you go up in elevation?
