### Introduction To

Fluids

•  = m/V

• : density (kg/m3)

• m: mass (kg)

• V: volume (m3)

• p = F/A

• p : pressure (Pa)

• F: force (N)

• A: area (m2)

The pressure of a fluid is exerted in all directions.

The force on a surface caused by pressure is always normal to the surface.

• p = gh

• p: pressure (Pa)

• : density (kg/m3)

• g: acceleration constant (9.8 m/s2)

• h: height of liquid column (m)

• p = po + gh

• p: pressure (Pa)

• po: atmospheric pressure (Pa)

• gh: liquid pressure (Pa)

Density of Hg

Problem

Area of piston: 8 cm2

Weight of piston: 200 N

A

What is total pressure at point A?

Archimedes’ Principle: a body immersed in a fluid is buoyed up by a force that is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced.

Buoyant Force: the upward force exerted on a submerged or partially submerged body.

Fbuoy = Vg

Fbuoy: the buoyant force exerted on a submerged or partially submerged object.

V: the volume of displaced liquid.

: the density of the displaced liquid.

Fbuoy = rVg

mg

Buoyant force on submerged object

Note: if Fbuoy < mg, the object will sink deeper!

Fbuoy = rVg

mg

Buoyant force on submerged object

SCUBA divers use a buoyancy control system to maintain neutral buoyancy (equilibrium!)

Fbuoy = rVg

mg

Buoyant force on floating object

If the object floats, we know for a fact Fbuoy = mg!

• Conservation of Mass results in continuity of fluid flow.

• The volume per unit time of water flowing in a pipe is constant throughout the pipe.

• A1v1 = A2v2

• A1, A2: cross sectional areas at points 1 and 2

• v1, v2: speed of fluid flow at points 1 and 2

• V = Avt

• V: volume of fluid (m3)

• A: cross sectional areas at a point in the pipe (m2)

• v: speed of fluid flow at a point in the pipe (m/s)

• t: time (s)

• Lunch Bunch pretest due tomorrow at beginning of regular class.

• Engineering seminar announcement.

The sum of the pressure, the potential energy per unit volume, and the kinetic energy per unit volume at any one location in the fluid is equal to the sum of the pressure, the potential energy per unit volume, and the kinetic energy per unit volume at any other location in the fluid for a non-viscous incompressible fluid in streamline flow.

All other considerations being equal, when fluid moves faster, the pressure drops.

• p +  g h + ½ v2 = Constant

• p : pressure (Pa)

•  : density of fluid (kg/m3)

• g: gravitational acceleration constant (9.8 m/s2)

• h: height above lowest point (m)

• v: speed of fluid flow at a point in the pipe (m/s)
