Unformatted text preview: 22.381 Undergraduate Mechanical Engineering Fluid Mechanics Test 1 :Chapter 1 and 2 Instructor : Prof. D. Willis Name and UMS ID: 1. (35 pts) Concept Questions: Please answer the following concept questions fully, but concisely. Expla- nations for any questions are recommended if you are unsure of your answer. (a) True or False: Liquid viscosity generally decreases as the temperature rises True: As temperature rises, liquids in general become less viscous (b) True or False: Wetting liquids have higher surface tension than non-wetting liquids False: The wetting or non-wetting is a property of the material the fluid droplet is in contact with. Eg. Water and a waxed car, vs. water and metal. (c) True or False: Helium has negative weight, this is why helium balloons rise False: The reason is there is a buoyancy force greater than the weight of the helium and balloon (d) True or false: The only place in a fluid where shear stresses exist is at the walls of the flow. False: Shear stresses may occur anywhere in the flow (e) What is the difference between a Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluid? Give an example of each. Newtonian Fluids are special in that the stress-strain rate relationship is linear and has a zero intercept. Non-Newtonian fluids have nonlinear stress-strain rate relationshipsintercept....
