Convection heat-transfer data are often reported as a heat-transfer coefficient h,
defined by Q = h A T
where Q = heat flow, J/s
A = surface a
HYDROSTATIC
FORCES
fluid is at rest or moving in such a
way that there is no relative motion
between adjacent particles
no shearing stresses in the fluid

pressure thr
Buoyancy, Flotation,
and Stability
Buoyant force the resultant force
acting on a body that is completely
submerged or floating in a fluid
Archimedes principle
the
buoyant force has a magnitude
equal t
FLUID PRESSURE
Concerns to Explore:
1. Pressure at a Point
2. Variation of Pressure from Point to
Point
3. Pressure Measurement
Pascals law (Blaise Pascal)
The pressure at a point in a
fluid at rest,

ASSIGNMENT 1 on Fluid Flow
I.
(a) The hypodermic needle contains some sort of serum (SG = 1.02).
If the plunger is pushed steadily at 0.8 in./s, what is the exit velocity
V2 in feet per second
Two approaches:
1. Describing the detailed flow pattern at
every point in the field
2. Control Volume method
Working with finite region, making a
balance of flow in and flow out; and
determining gross
