### Lecture 26

Goals:

• Understand pressure in liquids

• Use Archimedes’ principle to understand buoyancy

• Understand the equation of continuity

• Use an ideal-fluid model to study fluid flow.

### Fluids

• At ordinary temperatures, matter exists in one of three states

• Solid: Has a shape and forms a surface

• Liquid: Has no shape but forms a surface

• Gas : No shape and does not form a surface

Increasing temperature

### Fluids

• Fluids: Liquids or Gases

• Shape determined by container

• Close contact at boundaries. No macroscopic gaps

• Forces exerted by fluids are always normal to the surface.

• Fluids can flow

• Fluids:

• They have mass

• They have weight

• They carry energy

• They have velocity when flow

• Newton’s Laws apply

### Fluids

• An intrinsic parameter of a fluid

• Density

units :

kg/m3 = 10-3 g/cm3

r(water) = 1.000 x 103 kg/m3 = 1.000 g/cm3

r(ice) = 0.917 x 103 kg/m3 = 0.917 g/cm3

r(air) = 1.29 kg/m3 = 1.29 x 10-3 g/cm3

r(Hg) = 13.6 x103 kg/m3 = 13.6 g/cm3

r(W or Au) = 19.3 x103 kg/m3 = 19.3 g/cm3

### Fluids

• Another parameter: Pressure

• A Fluid exerts force on the objects it contacts

• Molecules constantly bounces off the surface with F =Σ(Δmv/Δt) (momentum transfer / time)

• Any force exerted by a fluid is perpendicular to a surface of contact, and is proportional to the area of that surface.

• Force (avector) in a fluid can be expressed in terms of pressure (a scalar) as:

Do not confuse pressure with momentum

What is the SI unit of pressure?

• Pascal

• Atmosphere

• Bernoulli

• Young

• p.s.i.

Units :

1 N/m2 = 1 Pa (Pascal)

1 bar = 105 Pa

1 mbar = 102 Pa

1 torr = 133.3 Pa

1 atm = 1.013 x105 Pa

= 1013 mbar

= 760 Torr

= 14.7 lb/ in2 (=PSI)

### A bed of nails

• Distributing the force over a large area ….

### Ping pong ball bazooka

• What is the initial force on the ping pong ball?

• Assuming this force is constant, how fast is the ping pong ball travelling when it leaves the tube?

F

This is a crude model….the speed of sound in air is 330 m/s

### Pressure vs. DepthIncompressible Fluids (liquids)

• When the pressure is small, relative to the bulk modulus of the fluid, we can treat the density as constant independent of pressure:

incompressible fluid

• For an incompressible fluid, the density is the same everywhere, but the pressure is NOT!

• P(y) = P0 - y g r

• Gauge pressure (subtract P0)

• PGauge = P(y) - P0

F2 = F1+ m g

= F1+ rVg

F2 /A = F1/A + rVg/A

### Pressure vs. Depth in water

Every 10 meters the pressure increases by 1 atm

### Pascal’s Principle

• For a uniform fluid in an open container pressure same at a given depthindependentof the container

• Fluid level is the same everywhere in a connected container, assuming no surface forces

• Does PA=PB?

(B)r1 = r2

(C)r1>r2

### Exercise Pressure

• What happens with two fluids??

• Consider a U tube containing liquids of density r1 and r2 as shown:

Compare the densities of the liquids:

r2

r1

### Pressure Measurements: Barometer

• Invented by Torricelli

• A long closed tube is filled with mercury and inverted in a dish of mercury

• The closed end is nearly a vacuum

• PA=PB

• Measures atmospheric pressure as

1 atm = 0.760 m (of Hg)

### Pascal’s Principle in action: Hydraulics, a force amplifier

• Consider the system shown:

• A downward force F1 is applied to the piston of area A1.

• This force is transmitted through the liquid to create an upward force F2.

• Pascal’s Principle says that increased pressure from F1 (F1/A1) is transmitted throughout the liquid.

P1

P1 = P2

F1 / A1 = F2 / A2

A2 / A1 = F2 / F1

W2?

W1

W1 > W2

W1 < W2

W1 = W2

### Archimedes’ Principle: A Eureka Moment

• Suppose we weigh an object in air (1) and in water (2).

How do these weights compare?

• Buoyant force = Weight of the fluid displaced

### Sink or Float?

• The buoyant force is equalto the weight of the liquid that is displaced.

• If the buoyant force is larger than the weight of the object, it will float; otherwise it will sink.

• We can calculate how much of a floating object will be submerged in the liquid:

• Object is in equilibrium

C. It drops

A. It rises

m1 < m2 < m3 < m4 < m5

What is the final position of each block?
