Continuity and Conservation of Matter
1. Mass flow rate
If we want to measure the rate at which water is flowing along a pipe. A very simple
way of doing this is to catch all the water coming out of t
Fluids Mechanics and Fluid Properties
What is fluid mechanics? As its name suggests it is the branch of applied mechanics
concerned with the statics and dynamics of fluids - both liquids and gases. Th
Forces in Static Fluids
This section will study the forces acting on or generated by fluids at rest.
Objectives
Introduce the concept of pressure;
Prove it has a unique value at any particular eleva
Forces on Submerged Surfaces in Static
Fluids
We have seen the following features of statics fluids
Hydrostatic vertical pressure distribution
Pressures at any equal depths in a continuous fluid are
Pressure Measurement By Manometer
The relationship between pressure and head is used to measure pressure with a manometer (also know as a liquid
gauge).
Objective:
To demonstrate the analysis and use
Properties of Fluids
The properties outlines below are general properties of fluids which are of interest in
engineering. The symbol usually used to represent the property is specified together
with s
The Bernoulli equation
1. Work and energy
We know that if we drop a ball it accelerates downward with an
acceleration
(neglecting the frictional resistance due to air). We can
calculate the speed of t
Dimensional Analysis
In engineering the application of fluid mechanics in designs make much of the use of
empirical results from a lot of experiments. This data is often difficult to present in a
read
Applications of the Bernoulli Equation
The Bernoulli equation can be applied to a great many situations not just the pipe flow
we have been considering up to now. In the following sections we will see

The Momentum Equation And Its
Applications
We have all seen moving fluids exerting forces. The lift force on an aircraft is exerted
by the air moving over the wing. A jet of water from a hose exerts a
