Fluids Liquid or gas Flows from one place to another Shape depends on container Still use Newton's Laws

Pressure The form of Newton's 2 nd Law that we know so far doesn't make much sense for fluids Rewrite it: Force is always perpendicular to the surface. Pressure is a scalar. A fluid can only push on a surface Units pascal (Pa) = N/m 2 F = m a P = F A

Atmospheric Pressure P atm = 1.01 x 10 5 Pa For a sheet of paper, this is about 5,000 N! Why doesn't the paper bend? Same for many objects Example: nonevacuated disks For some objects, the force from atmospheric pressure is obvious. Examples: evacuated disks, suctions cups

Unformatted text preview: independent (ex: water, most liquids). Compressible – density changes with pressure (most gases, some liquids) Table of some densities is on pg.314. Note density can depend on temperature. ρ= M V [ kg m 2 ] Pressure and Gravity Atmospheric pressure arises because of the weight of the fluid pushing down on an object. Pressure increases with depth because there is more weight An object floating submerged in a fluid (in equilibrium) Examples U-tube How does a straw work? IV vs blood pressure. Pascal's Principle If the pressure at one location in a closed container of fluid changes, this change is transmitted to all locations in the fluid Examples: Cartesian Divers, Hydraulics...

    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.
