    Fluid Mechanics- Introduction

    FLUID MECHANICS-Introduction Three parts of fluid mechanics (a) Fluid statics deals with forces applied by fluids at rest. This fluid force is pressure, which is a normal force exerted by a fluid per unit area. It is called the static pressure of the fluid. Some laws are used in fluid statics. These are Pascal’s law (the […]
