2 1 Surface Stress Quantities like density, velocity, and pressure are defined by a value at every point in the fluid at every time t . The density r ( v r , t ) and pressure p ( v r , t )a re scalar fields . They have a numerical value at every point in space at any instant in time. The velocity v v ( v r , t )i sa vector field ; it is defined by a direction as well as a magnitude at every point. Fig. 1: A surface element at a point in a continuum. The surface stress is a more complicated type of quantity. One cannot talk of the stress at a point without first defining the particular surface through that point on which the stress acts. A small fluid surface element centered at the point v r is defined by its area d A (the prefix indicates a very small but finite quantity) and by its outward unit normal vector v n . The stress exerted by the fluid on the side toward which v n points on the surface element is defined as v s = lim A Æ 0 v F A (1) where v F is the force exerted on the surface by the fluid on that side (only one side is involved). In the limit A Æ 0 the stress is independent of the magnitude of the area, but will in general depend on the orientation of the surface element, which is specified by v n .In other words, v = v ( v x , t , v n ). (2) The fact that v depends on v n as well as x, y, z and t appears at first sight to complicate matters considerably. One apparently has to deal with a quantity that depends on six independent variables ( x, y, z, t , and the two that specify the orientation v n ) rather than four.
3 Fortunately, nature comes to our rescue. We find that because v s is a stress, it must depend on v n in a relatively simple way.
