Unformatted text preview: Chapter 14 Fluid A fluid is a collection of molecules that are randomly arranged and held together by weak cohesive forces and by forces exerted by the walls of a container . Both liquids and gases are fluids. The force exerted by a fluid on an object is always perpendicular to the surfaces of the object. The pressure in a fluid can be measured with the device A F P = dA dF P = The SI unit : N/m 2 , Pa (pascal) 1 N/m 2 = 1 Pa Chapter 14 Fluid Variation of Pressure with Depth =-- = Σ Mg A P PA F y =-- Ahg A P PA ρ gh P P ρ + = Pa atm P 5 10 103 . 1 00 . 1 × = = Pascal’s law : a change in the pressure applied to a fluid is transmitted undiminished to every point of the fluid and to the walls of the container.
