Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
Fluid Mechanics is focused on the motion of
material bodies that are in liquid or gas phase. It is
the study of fluids either in motion (fluid dynamics)
or at rest (fluid statics) and the subsequen

Principle of Hydrostatics
Hydrostatics is the study of pressures throughout a fluid at rest and the pressure forces on finite surfaces.
